17-year-old singer-songwriter d4vd has shared the gothic music video for “Romantic Homicide.”
The Darkroom/Interscope Records signee has been steadily building momentum thanks to his gloomy, emotive sound. “Romantic Homicide,” his best track to date, recently found success on TikTok. To feed his rapidly growing fanbase, d4vd has shared the Tommy Kiljoy-directed video.
Complete with moody imagery that sees the Houston native mourning and eventually moving on from the death of a relationship, the visual takes the lyrics literally as d4vd belts them out in the pouring rain. The video was influenced by his love of anime and noir films, which comes across particularly strongly in the shots of trains speeding by.
d4vd was recently named one of Pigeons & Planes’ Best New Artists of August. Prior to kicking off his music career, he was active in the Fortnite community and frequently shared highlight reels set to other people’s music. When he started to face repeated copyright notices, he decided to start making his own music. He’s since signed to Darkroom, the label that’s home to Billie Eilish, and has partnered with Mogul Vision Management. He’s also teased collaborations with Pinkpantheress, Clairo, and SSGKobe among others.
