Seattle singer MistaDC is back with yet another shining example of why the Pacific Northwest is a hotbed for artistic talent with his video for “SUNRAYS.”
Directed by Brian Hutson, the black and white visuals focus on MistaDC, both as a kid and grownup, examining the site of a shooting. According to the artist himself, the video is an ode to a friend who died in a similar vein. “Due to the content of the video and personal significance of the song, this was a hard visual to complete, but I wanted to use these frames to both honor loved ones I’ve lost and illuminate issues we face today.”
Aside from the fact that the video displays a powerful and important message, the song itself is also beautiful. DC has a voice that seems to fill up the room whenever it comes waltzing through the door, and that much is true on “SUNRAYS.” Couple those great vocals with a warm and upbeat piano-laden beat by Kyo-Ken, and you’ve got yourself a hit.
DC is currently working on his debut solo project VICKY: The Story of a High School Sweetheart, which is slated to hit digital shelves soon. Until then, press play on “SUNRAYS” above and be sure to stay locked on EARMILK for all your dope music wants and needs.
