On the surface you have an amazing record. Some “feel good music” that everyone can relate to.
With the visual for Concrete Jungle I wanted to take it a step deeper. Tell a story that hits close to home for so many of us.
Life is about choices and consequences. The “right” choice can help you distance yourself from the consequences that follow the “wrong” choice, but the “wrong” choice is always so easy to make. I encourage you all to check out the video, share it with your peers.
Like I said on the surface it’s an amazing song so you won’t be disappointed, but I challenge you to take that step and dig deeper into the message. Everybody is going to draw something different from it, and that’s what art is supposed to do. Enjoy.
