Singer-songwriter bLAck pARty has shared the laid-back visual for his laidback track "No Complaints." The newly released single is taken from his upcoming album Endless Summer, which marks his first release through Wolf + Rothstein and RCA Records.
Directed by Dylan McGale, the vintage-inspired video finds the Arkansas-bred artist enjoying mundane activities like skateboarding, smoking, and cruising with friends. According to bLAck pARty, he wanted the video to evoke a carefree, easygoing feeling through an aesthetic reminiscent of old-school skate videos.
"'No Complaints' for me represents freedom. It’s about focusing on the right now and ignoring all of the bullshit going on and flying high above it all," he said. "For the visual I wanted to capture the feeling of coasting through life observing the outside world like a camera. It was important to me to have my brothers in the video [DMP Jefe & Beedy] so I got them riding with me. While in meetings for the video, Dylan McGale and I actually found out we both love skateboarding and all the old skate flicks, so he made sure we captured that."
