Cosmo’s Midnight ‘Snare’ ft. Wild Eyed Boy (Official Video)
Everyone’s favourite producer brothers, COSMO’S MIDNIGHT have hit the ground running this year, and have just released the film clip for latest track Snare – an R’n’B flavoured track featuring the soulful, passionate vocals of London singer WILD EYED BOY.
Industry big names CHESTER BUCHANAN and FINNEGAN BOYLE teamed up for these visuals, and the result is a clip that is as beautifully shot as it is intriguing in storyline. Following a guy dressed in a racecar driver suit, driving around picking up ex-girlfriends, as they pile into his car until there is no room left.
At the end of the clip, there is a beautiful scene with the girls are standing beside the car, lined up across the road with the mysterious driver at the front and the girls leave, walking into the surrounding bush. Strange but striking, this clip for Snare is as interesting as the track itself.
The song feels relatively simplistic, and subdued compared to past COSMO’S tracks, but this clip adds a certain complexity. It suggests the girls are this guy’s emotional baggage, as he deals with the fact he promised all these past girlfriend’s he’d “always be there” for them, and how love can confuse and delude.
Snare is the first track off COSMO’S MIDNIGHT forthcoming EP, and has set the bar extremely high for the tracks still to follow. After the past two years these brothers have had, it’s safe to say they know what they’re doing, and are ready to really put themselves into action. That EP cannot come soon enough!
