Okayfuture Video: Bonobo x Grey Reverend - "First Fires" (Dir. Alex Takacs)

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Bonobo presents the video for "First Fires" featuring Grey Reverend. The visual is directed by Alex Takacs and explores the concept of renaissance in love - each principle returning to a place of his or her familiar to find that thing that often gets lost in space or translation as lovers grow distant. The suspense of the narrative pulls the viewer in to join the quest for that particular strain of passion that first ignites in the gut and gains momentum as the heart warms to the task of love. "First Fires" is a weighty mix of greying mists and powder pastel sunsets juxtaposed by the textural contrast of the changing seasons. The narrative forces the eye back to those places that first make the heart skip. The images and emotions are woven together beautifully enough to make a skeptic believe that love - however it manifests - is worth fighting for.
