Lando Chill returns with his new video for “Save Me”.
Lando ChillÂ releases hisÂ debut album,Â For Mark, Your SonÂ onÂ August 12Â via Mello Music Group.Â Today we’re excited to shareÂ a new video for theÂ single, “Save Me” directed by Malcolm Critcher and cinematographerÂ Symeon Platts. WatchÂ the video from Lando Chill and be sure to cop the album when it drops.
Lando explains,Â “The type of loss… of faith, self identity, death of a father… this is what I grew to know as normal. writing this song, shooting this video… It isn’t supposed to be an easy watch. I want you to delve down deep, find that pain you’ve been holding on to, and let it go like ash in the night wind… for the burden we carry isÂ heavy, yet does not need to be carried alone.”
Director Malcolm Critcher says,Â “Symeon and IÂ focused heavilyÂ in pre-production onÂ developingÂ a narrative that reflected the quiet,Â contemplative nature of Save Me. Â It was very important to us that we cultivatedÂ anÂ aesthetic that had the same minimalistic beauty the song has. Because of that we ended up shooting pretty much exclusively at Sunrise and Sunset. It was grueling, but completelyÂ worth it.”
For Mark, Your SonÂ isÂ a 12-song tribute to the father who passed away when the Chicago-born and raised rapper was just three years oldâ€”the rare shout into the existential abyss that actually receives answers echoing back. Itâ€™s a coming-of-age story rooted in life, death, and legacy. It reminds us how the dearly departed can leave behind an indelible light. Itâ€™s the work of a brilliant 24-year old Tucson transplant with a wicked jump shot, who steadfastly embodies the compassion, strength, and talent of his vanished hero.
