Video: Co La "Make It Slay"
- Words: Brad Stabler
Baltimore-based tunesmith Co La's sleek, stuttering tune lends itself to all kinds of potential visual interpretations, and the video for "Make it Slay" is the kind of clip that just needs to be seen to form one's own opinion. The Andrew Strasser-directed video weaves a physically impossible stream of champagne pouring into a glass through a variety of natural and aesthetically-pleasing settings, the camera diving and pivoting up, down, around, and inside the glass. This is aided by Co La's crisp track, which features a gorgeous trumpet line, one-off synths and samples (is that Darth Vader?), a decidedly icey groove, and contributions from former Dirty Projectors vocalist Angel Deradoorian. Like the tune that birthed it, this clip is hypnotic and impressive in its own right.
