Noah Caine dropped another visual for a track off Everything’s Gon’ Hurt, this time taking a sidestep from Golgo 13 and the intersection of anime and hip-hop, to a film that could’ve been released in black and white in the 90s, and borrows jazz brass to create a murky vibe.
Noah’s visuals present a rawness which marries itself effortlessly to the overarching lyric he sets up throughout the entire song; the vintage fuzz has an unadulterated halo around it, and the “draw in” effects provide additional, wordless commentary which add brushstrokes to the painting that the lyrics have already begun creating. “Police be murdering people we watch the media spin it/Like Abracadabra, here’s a cadaver put it on camera” playing right when an image of the Trump Tower spawns itself in the visual is subliminal messaging in its finest form (the Trump Tower logo being crossed out and replaced with ‘fraud’ adds to the radical rhetoric).
As said in our premiere of the song a while back, as well as in our interview with Noah, the jazz instrumentation creates the somber aesthetic needed in a track with lyrical density like this. The aforementioned grainy imagery plays in perfectly with this, with the special effects adding an urban contemporary vibe to the graphic as well. Everything about this track is about as mellow as can be, though it wouldn’t be a shocker if Noah comes through in the (near) future with an even more desolate track.
The visual for “Flex,” as well as the recently dropped “Off The Strength,” which we covered a while ago, have a similar dark aesthetic to them that makes it simple to connect the dots as to how quality Noah’s next visual should be, and to how he creates as an artist. You can stream Everything’s Gon’ Hurt below and keep up with Noah on Twitter and Instagram, and well as his personal website.
