Duckwrth – Psycho (Official Video).

It’s rare that the music videos provide us with a form of story telling now a days, be it straightforward or more abstract, the Hip Hop video landscape is littered with cars and falling money, and single colored backgrounds.  (No offense to anyone who has a video like that… I’ve been in a few myself).  The social commentary and quick witted delivery of Duckwrth’s single “Psycho” required accompanying visuals that also made a statement.  The sleek and sultry bass lines provided by The Kickdrums, move the video through a few basic but beautifully shot scenes.  Director Nick Snow and crew did a wonderful job, from a full 720 degree tracking shot in the park, to the bright and slightly ominous apartment ending with blood red walls.  Check the method below.

The track Naruto has already been spun all over the world, before the video even dropped.  Shot by Mancy Gant, the Naruto video is both tribal, and urban. Simple, unique, and complex. Stunningly introspective, and still manages to give people what they want from Duckwrth. Check out the visuals for Naurto below.
