The Florida-born artist’s genre-agnostic approach to crafting music shines through the new smokey visuals.
Though he only has a handful of official releases under his belt, it’s hard not to get excited about Terry Presume. The Nashville-based singer, songwriter, producer and rapper has teamed up with director Spencer Ford (BROCKHAMPTON/JAWNY/St. Panther) for the fantastical video for ‘ZaZa and Some Runtz’.
Shot in Los Angeles, the visuals provide a surrealist lens into the neighbourhood smoke spot, with Terry surrounded by his friends as the camera provides warped and skewed views of a day in the life.
Built on a bedrock of funk and psychedelia-infused instrumentation, it sees the rapper harness the freewheeling energy of yesteryear as part of his trip-inducing world building.
On the track, Terry says, “Coincidentally (and I don’t believe in coincidences) this video was made in the same fashion as the song was, in the spur of a marijuana-induced moment”
The track and video follows the release of his recent single ‘Did Me Wrong’ and lands ahead of a forthcoming EP.
