Back in March, Nosaj Thing, Chance the Rapper and The O’My’s connected on “Cold Stares” – a somber tune about love, loss, and the inner effects of heroin addiction (at least that’s what I get out of it). Now, with the summer heat dwindling away, the LA producer resurfaces with its accompanying video.
Set in a dimly lit psych ward, the Daito Manabe and Takcom-directed visual is equal parts unsettling and intriguing, as it focuses on a patient seemingly having an out of body experience. Simply put: It’s dark, it’s glitchy, and it’s fucking awesome.
“Cold Stares” lives on Nosaj Thing’s Fated LP, available on iTunes.
For the complete experience, head to Rhizomatiks and witness how it all was done.
