Canadian ensemble BADBADNOTGOOD shares a new song and video. ‘Beside April’, the second single from BADBADNOTGOOD’s highly anticipated psychedelic jazz album, was composed in conjunction with legendary Brazilian composer Arthur Verocai and features iconic drummer/producer Karriem Riggins (J Dilla, Madlib). The forthcoming album, Talk Memory, also features collaborations w/ Laraaji, Terrace Martin & more. Paired with the new track are visuals directed by Camille Summers-Valli, whose inspiration for the video was taken from the first-ever film footage called Horse in Motion 1878.
Speaking about creating the ‘Beside April’ visual, Summers-Valli shares – “There was really special energy around this video. The band wanted to do something with horses and equestrians. That’s where this begun. Funnily enough, I am petrified of horses. But it felt like a good way to overcome my fears. Subconsciously through a process of reading, finding references and discussing with my team, I started to piece together the puzzle of what this video could be. We shot this in Georgia; where the casting was incredible. The horse also was wonderful. So strong and majestic, we just wanted to do this beautiful creature justice. The magic aligned, so many great hard working people pulled this video together.”
