Currently based out of NYC, Koncept and J57 have certainly been getting their hands dirty this year, and quite literally so in their new video. The duo has been slaving away at their highly anticipated EP, titled The Fuel,and sculpting it with the rawest material there is: heart.
The first single off the 8-track EP, “Porcelain” features Hollis, whose voice is intoxicating and found itself very much at home, as sandwiched with support from Koncept’s passion-filled vocals and J57’s hauntingly beautiful production. Hollis handles the hook for “Porcelain” with a treatment that completes the track fully and elevates it to a higher level, much like she did for Macklemore’s “White Walls,” back in 2013.
The visuals, as filmed and directed by the Vinton Depiction team, are a wonderful accent to the track, taking us to the coasts of Oregon where the legendary Goonies was filmed.
The video features the song’s creators experiencing life’s natural and fragile beauty through destruction, during scenes that showcase a precarious balance of what is deeply personal and what is mysterious, much like the song itself.
With EP and “Porcelain” artwork by Chris B. Murray, stunning video production by Vinton Depiction and of course, incredible musicianship by Koncept and J57, The Fuel EP is to be signed, sealed and delivered with genuine artistic expression at its purest form, sure to set the bar high for other artists and their future releases alike.
The Fuel EP is slated to drop November 20th via KON57 Records and is currently available for pre-order via iTunes.
