KCIDY – Stormy Day

[jwplatform xIt4KVzU-Pqiywodl]

The music video for “Stormy Day” by KCIDY is mystic, ethereal, and complex. It begins in a place filled with textures of purple and blue, all encompassed by a misty glow. On one side, a woman wearing a shimmering gold headpiece over her eyes clutches a long white branch that resembles a bone, swinging it back and forth in one hand. On the other side, a boy in a Keith Haring-esque shirt and blue hat sits in a crumpled gold shell, swinging a rock back and forth on a string. They both seem to be keeping time in the heavenly place. The feeling is enforced by a glass cube of water, which rocks back and forth in perfect rhythm between them. It is possible that the woman (with the bone-like object) represents death and the young boy (in the egg-like structure) represents life. When the boy begins dropping the crystalline rocks into the cube, people are born; thrust into the water, encased in crumpled plastic, and swimming free. From there on out, the video builds a captivating dreamscape and pulls you deeper and deeper into the music.
