The New Jersey duo release a spellbinding short-film-as-video for their latest single.
The New Jersey duo of Brandon Asraf and John Tacon have just put out a new EP called Dropped, a wickedly intense, searing slice of indie rock, one that displays a darker, more sinister side than most indie that comes out these days. There are no playful Afrobeats here. Nope, something more sinister lurks underneath, and that's exactly what you learn when you see the incredible new video for the track "Brighter Than the Sun". Vividly, brutally shot and beautifully presented, it's a brilliant little short that commands your attention from the get-go.
"We envisioned a character that would represent the sun and essentially embody a type of brightness in a dark and gritty place," says director Rosco Guerrero. "But all things bright are fading and our story lives in the grey area between light and dark, right and wrong. Sunshine is empowered and has made her decision. Our twisted take on the song 'Brighter Than The Sun', fueled by a childhood nightmare."
Brick + Mortar's dropped EP is out now.
