Adult Programming dropped this wild video just under a month ago, and it's quite the trip. This alt-rock fast-paced track is paired with an eventful and jaw-dropping video.
The piece won Best Music Video, Best Score, Best Cinematography, and Best Visual Effects at the Hollywood Sun Awards Film Festival. In all honesty, this is one of the best videos I've seen from an Indie artist in quite some time. The style reminds me a bit of the video for"Nothing Special" from Ill Scarlett. The song itself isn't quite as aggressive, but the fast-paced film style and chaos are similar, and I'm very very impressed. There are a variety of different settings and special effects that make the video so eventful and upbeat.
This project is the fast-paced confessional archive of AJ Ruiz, who is a Miami based musician and actor. Ruiz is dead set on freeing himself from the constraints of responsibility through his work. Influenced by Interpol, Talking Heads, and of Montreal, AP delivers post-punk and new wave aesthetics with a fresh sense of humor.
