Video: Clairmont the Second – Pretty

Toronto wunderkind Clairmont the Second has been seriously impressive lately, especially given it’s still so early in his career. Back in April we wrote about “Queen,” an amazing chilled-out electronic hip-hop single that left us wanting more. If “Queen” was a little on the dark and mysterious side, “Pretty” is definitely much more lighthearted and playful. An ode to egotism, it’s a very slow, minimal production, with a killer bassline and gloriously start-stop beats. We’re into it. The stark, carefully composed video was directed by a team: Javier Lovera, Devon Little, and Ben Cook (aka Young Guv/Yacht Club).

“Pretty” is from 2014’s Project II, available as a free download from Clairmont’s Soundcloud.
