Known as the former guitarist for L.A.-based indie rockers Rooney, Taylor Locke released a solo LP earlier this year. Titled Time Stands Still, Locke showcases a songwriting prowess that fans of his former band may not have realized. Today, we’re excited to premiere the latest video off that album. “Call Me Kuchu” is styled as an old fashioned movie, but don’t let the fun vibes fool you. The song’s serious tenor is played down by the imagery, which is something that Locke intended.
“The challenge was to respect the serious nature of the song, but without illustrating the lyrical content too literally,” Locke says of the video. “I wanted to walk the line between having fun, but also acknowledging the matter at hand. I hope people will be entertained and drawn in by the look of the video, but also take a close listen to whats going on under the surface.”
