NEW VIDEO | ALEX BENT + THE EMPTINESS - "GWEN STEFANI"
Saskatoon-based Alex Bent + the Emptiness drops a doozy of a video for his track "Gwen Stefani".
Alex Bent is holding his position down as one of the top performers of alt r&b in the province. This new track "Gwen Stefani" captures a unique feeling that before now, only Frank Ocean could provide. The track itself definitely has some blonde influence to it, but still stands on its own as being artistically complex yet simply beautiful. Directed by Riley Deacon, the video is a masterpiece on its own, filled with a variety of different ideas like the use of text over top certain scenes, the smattering of multiple shots in one frame, and the use of colour plays a large part in setting the scene for an awesome video. Alex Bent is gearing up for an EP release titled Vanilla Blue on May 18 at their EP release party at Louis' Pub (poster below) but is available now through pre-order here. This song and the video that goes along with it is truly unreal and it is a treat to be doing a write-up on it. Looking forward to hearing it live. Keep killing it Saskatchewan, we are on the rise for sure.
