I’ve known about J’Von for a couple years at this point. Over that time, especially recently, he’s meshed his talents on the mic, behind the boards and on canvas using his drawings as artwork, depicting small themes from his songs. Today, though, the Seattle artist takes it a step further and delivers the animated “Seattle Girl” visual.
The video and song depict and man whose fell in love with a woman who doesn’t care to pay him much of a mind. She rips out his heart then leaves (as some fans do with music), so he flies away on some blob monster in peace. Blissful.
He spoke to The FADER, who premiered the video, about the metaphor lying in the song:
“Love is war, war is perpetual, and we all dedicate songs to people who will perhaps never listen to them. I thought it’d be cool to make something that speaks to that feeling as a creator with a muse amiss. It’s pretty chill.”
Watch the video above.
