In tandem with the project’s arrival, he shared the music video for “SAFE.” Watch it HERE! The cinematic clip hinges on a 360-degree shot of a suburban home in transition as its denizens face life’s trials and tribulations in raw, real, and relatable fashion. Airy synths and sparse production bristle against hypnotic admissions such as “I’m under too much pressure.” It all culminates on the hummable hook, “There’s a place in my head where I’m safe in my head.”
“SAFE” represents just one facet of the EP.
Elsewhere, the lead single “Eyelids” hinges on powerhouse rapping and a hyper-charged hook. “I Wish” leaps forward with nimble rhymes and bold proclamations over a synth choir.
