Clairmont The Second - Gheeze

Clairmont The Second is a young star that is certainly on the rise. For his video for Gheeze, the artist fills the screen with soaring visuals, split screens and unique composition framing to properly portray his fresh POV.  What makes Clairmont even more impressive is that not only is he creating music that is new and exciting, he’s also known for directing his videos himself, bringing us even further into his overall vision.

As a multi-dimensional artist, Clairmont’s work often blurs the line between fantasy and reality. Gheeze is a fully realized representation of his artistry. Playing with a colour palette reminiscent of California sunshine, he juxtaposes this dreamy aesthetic with references to his Weston Road roots, showcasing moments that feel all too familiar (a game of dominoes in the backyard, anyone?) - a strong point of pride for the artist and a running theme in all of his work.
