Video Premiere: Kone "Power Came to Them"
- Words: Christian Santana
Just weeks after the release of his Legend Days EP via Alpha Pup, LA tunesmith Kone premieres this video for his record's lead track, "Power Came to Them." The clip features shots of expansive deserts, skies, rocky crags, and petroglyphs, footage that the directing team, California Pastoral (a.k.a. Davon Ramos and Jesse Redding Fleming), calls "a visual complement to the rhythmic, progressive, almost tribal song, where the viewer/listener is immersed in this relationship between the music and nature." Whether or not you buy into those vaguely shamanistic undertones, the video's dusty aesthetics are a perfect accompaniment for the heady, earthy vibes that the enigmatic Kone puts forth in his tune.
