Directed by Reel Goats – Black Oxygen has put together a single/video combo that genuinely stands out, and puts a ton of the personality & chemistry that these brothers have to offer straight
onto your screens and into your speakers. Really well done all-around –
I’m a huge fan of putting your true self out there in any way you can when it comes to what you do – it adds significant authenticity, and the way they’ve approached the making of the video will prove that’s the truth.
Not only are they having some fun with it all – but when it comes time to flex for real & make the music part of their music-video happen, they snap right into place professionally and hustle up some results you can both see & hear. Full props to Reel Goats & the whole crew of talent working alongside them…they’re representin’ exactly what I’m talking about here – when you’re out there to do the job right, working with artists like David & Nick who wanna have a good time but also get things done – you can see how energy always takes its cue from the main stars of the show, and by the end, they’ve got everyone having a great time.
That’s what I mean, that’s what I’m saying – not just solid music & videos – but a welcoming aura & vibe that breaks through the 4th wall here in the behind-the-scenes footage/beginning & end of “Breathe The Smoke.”
Lyrically…perhaps not as welcoming…Black Oxygen makes it pretty clear they’re seekin’ out some space and it’s probably in all of our best interests to give’em that and try not to cross their path, you feel me?
“Breathe The Smoke” is a lot less chilled-out thematically in comparison to the serenity they seem to be finding as they look out over the forest & mountain tops…they might appear to be pretty laidback & zen-like dudes, but make no mistake, when it comes time to bring it to the mic, they’re ready to supply every syllable with the attitude, power, and punch required to make their words felt yo.
Everything you’ll read & learn about these dudes will reveal they’re thinking on another level when it comes to how to approach their career – hence you get standout ideas like this that are pretty much a crossover adventure that takes them straight from a commercial, to the main business of makin’ music, to behind-the-scenes footage that gives you major insight into who Nick & David are, and how the talent surrounding them is just like family, in on all the fun, and ready to bring their A-game when it comes time to get serious too.
These dudes have even worked with the legendary Danny Trejo y’all – that’s verifiable street-cred to the nth degree right there y’all – if Danny’s into Black Oxygen, the hellz YES we all should be too!
“Breathe The Smoke” also brings ALL that smoke straight to ya – they’re all fired-up, the song’s intense, it’s got that hat gives it a genuinely edgy vibe to go with their explicit lyricism – and I ain’t even remotely kidding when I say the main hooks will stick in your mind like a BBQ sauce-covered smore will stick to the roof of your mouth whilst you consider your choices in life.
For real – it’s a massively memorable tune with hooks you’ll be spittin’ along with’em – and quite likely for days & weeks to come.
“Breathe The Smoke” is quickly heatin’ up the scene already…don’t be surprised when these guys scorch their way straight to #1.
