Check the official video for the track “Stranger Than Fiction” and read the full story.
Three days before lockdown Moses Boyd played the last show of his EU tour, an electrifying sold out headline performance in Brixton that demonstrated everything that makes this young South London artist both unmissable and so important right now. Bringing together the fearlessness and whimsical nature of jazz with mastery, originality and a deep connection to the spectres of London’s underground sounds.
The video for ‘Stranger Than Fiction’ is a shadowy leap through the looking glass into a ghostly negative imaged world of jittering musically-conjured spirits, a micro film noir that brilliantly captures the spectral energy in Moses’ music.
“Stranger Than Fiction was created to highlight how the world we’re living in can appear so surreal and make you question what is real,” says Moses. “As we are seeing with current affairs, I feel it’s a question we all need to constantly fight for and contend with – because sometimes the Truth is Stranger than fiction.”
