Mayhem – [Kody Lavigne]

Kody Lavigne is an artist I just found out about no more than a month ago when he teamed up with Overcast for a music video for his song “need melatonin”, and ever since I have been a fan. The growing hyperpop scene is constantly flourishing and I find out about new artists literally every day, but it takes a lot for an artist to truly stand out, yet Kody is a talent who I have admired since the moment I first heard his music.

Just the other day, they decided to team up with Kody Lavigne to shoot a music video for his song “need melatonin”, and I was absolutely stunned at the results. Kody was an artist I wasn’t very knowledgeable about prior to this offering, but director Daniel Jordan K always brings the most out of the artists he works with, and Kody’s song undeniably speaks for itself first and foremost. As it opens, Kody and another gentleman wearing a suit as well as a bag on his head can be seen hanging out …
