Nue Drops Hypnotic Video for “Nightfall”
Today, Toronto artist Nue, premiered his much anticipated music video for his latest single, “Nightfall” via Hypebeast. The song has already cultivated over 1 million total streams since its audio release on Noisey. “Nightfall” is a striking in the video with animated narcotics, skulls, and animé inspired cartoons (that he’s drawn himself).
The anime illustrator explained the video to Hypebeast stating, “Soon as the sun goes down that’s when my day starts and that’s pretty much what the song is. N****s pretty much live in the darkness, me and boys that’s just the lifestyle. I got a project I’m working on right now that I’m super excited about. I went to a different planet to make that shit, it’s all these new sounds the world’s never heard before, so be sure to watch out for that.”
The video’s release follows Nue’s impressive Iroquois mixtape that went on to capture the attention of outlets such as; Complex, Fader, Pigeons and Planes, and PAPER. The Toronto native is slowly making waves in the American music market as he performed at the first ever Canadian music stage at this past SXSW.
Nue vulnerably shows his paranoia and dealings with women. Through all the nuanced complexities that Nue experiences, the video ends with a calmness taking over him — as blood drapes all over his body, symbolizing escaping his troubles and coming to terms with his issues.
