2. Kevin Abstract – “ECHO”
Kevin Abstract just dropped the official video for ‘ECHO’ days ago, but it instantly became one of our favorite music videos of the year. Off his forthcoming sophomore LP, THEY SHOOT HORSES, which releases in 2016, the visuals for ‘ECHO’ fill the artistic void in music videos that Frank Ocean has left open for the past couple years. Directed by 20-year-old Tyler Mitchell, the original visuals complement the record’s theme of loneliness and loss. Expect this to be just one of many great music videos that we see from the young minds of Abstract and Mitchell, with hopefully more videos from Abstract’s upcoming album to follow.
