There’s an absolute music video renaissance happening in Nashville and it’s largely entirely hip-hop videos. We’ll talk more about that later but, for now, make yourself keenly aware of the new Jordan XX video for “Highs and Lows,” directed by Seck.
Taken from Surfing: Highs and Lows, this title track is emblematic of Jordan XX’s sound and lyrical content. His verses are often instrospective and reflective of poor choices set against a melancholy backdrop of impressively simple and nuanced beats.
That said, a video featuring a puppet traversing a breakup and dealing with the malaise that follows is an absolute brilliant dichotomy of vibes. You can’t help but be gleefully entertained but that delight is weighted by the hardships of the felt protagonist. It’s an emotional rollercoaster that works on every level.
Our recommendation: watch it thrice.
