Son Little Drops A Surreal Visual For His Socially Conscious & Sharp-Toothed Single "O Mother"
Months ago, when Son Little let go of his socially-sharp, politically-driven single “O Mother,” we were immediately swept up in its implicit self-awareness, damning a world that takes so much from black culture and offers so little in the form of reciprocation. A protest anthem disguised as a whispery r&b ballad, reminiscent of a more hard-nosed Frank Ocean, but tugging at the seams of the societal fabric like Curtis Mayfield or Marvin Gaye did 40 years before him. Today the singer/songwriter/guitarist has let loose a surreal visual for that song, embodying the collective haze and crisis of identity our nation’s black youth have endured for centuries on end with an aesthetic that’s lucid, but dream-like; whimsical but deceptively poignant. Watch the video for Son Little’s latest single “O Mother” and be sure to drop your eyes down under the player to check out his forthcoming live dates on the east coast, Wisconsin and Tennessee.
