But – [Deem Spencer]

Currently coasting off of the success of his stellar new project, Pretty Face, it feels as though all eyes are on Deem Spencer — and apparently so, the Queens native is more than ready to perform under pressure. Today, Spencer revisits the project with a set of accompanying visuals for one of my personal favorite cuts, “But.”

Infused with jazzy instrumentation and a nonchalant, yet deeply soulful tint, “But” works well in the way that Spencer seamlessly marries his vocals to the production. In doing so, he intertwines the sonic elements of the track under one, ever-so-smooth umbrella, and the result is a magical sense of energy that comes across just as unique as it does organic.

Beyond the song, however, the newly-arrived visuals speak to these very same points, using a day in the life storyline to show listeners the worlds of diverse people, places, and surroundings that act as a backdrop to Spencer’s artistry. That said, while Pretty Face certainly had a lot to say in and of itself, I would argue that this music video is an essential subsequent release to understanding the full story, as both the imagery and effects showcased here give us an even rounder picture of the brilliant life of Deem Spencer.

I could go on about this one all day long, but I’ll just you check it out for yourself. Watch “But” below and let us know what you think in the comments!
