BKLYN 1834's NΔTIONS & Denitia Share Dreamy New Video For "Planned Out World
The vibrant and exciting sounds of the BKLYN 1843 collective comes across as effortless, but in truth it’s the result of strict discipline. The group is a kind of modern musical utopian colony, living and working together in Brooklyn’s Ditmas Park neighborhood all under the same roof since 2009. BKLYN 1834 collaborates to make new genre-bending music, art, video, and even comedy, and in the new video for “Planned Out World” by NΔTIONS and Denitia, the entire troupe’s talents are on display. Symbols of tiny fires struggling in the winter cold and bodies vanishing into thin, gusty air deliver a tone of beautiful fragility throughout the clip. It’s a perfect way to welcome in December.
“I wrote ‘Planned Out World’ a couple years ago, but it was all on guitar instead of synth based,” Nolan Thies, one half of NΔTIONS, said. “I always had the same melody, but the lyrics didn’t come until a year later. Those always fit the song better than overthinking lyrics in the end – all about whatever sounds best.” NΔTIONS’ other leading man, Toby Pipes, asserted that “Denitia did a really great job on the vocals. She has this amazing buttery voice that just sits like a cloud in a track, plus the harmony/Aahs she came up with in the chorus are great.”
BKLYN1834’s roster of previous collaborations includes Prince, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, Snarky Puppy, Theophilus London, Freddie Gibbs, Pharaohe Monch, Denitia and Sene, among others. But it seems that when they’re working amongst themselves, collaborating in-house, the fires burn just as bright.
