Pell Drops Sly New Music Video Off His Debut Album Gravity…
Today on Sensei’s Music Blog, we get to help Pell showcase his newest music video for ‘Too Much Of A Good Thing’ - which accompanied the album drop and was fittingly shot in New Orleans by NOLA director Dominic Scott. Written by Pell himself, the video features shots of a bedroom reconstructed outdoors and cinematic juxtapositions between day and night.
“The TMOAGT video is about how most of us are just creatures of habit. The bed was painted cloud colors because it feels like a dream when things are going too good and you’re in so deep that you can’t see anything else. The interaction between us revolves around the bed and the booze - these things led us into a relationship that we can’t see out of,” Pell responds on the creativity behind ‘Too Much Of A Good Thing’ visual.
‘Gravity’ is Pell’s third full length installment completing a trilogy, preceded by his critically acclaimed ‘Floating While Dreaming’ mixtape (2014) and ‘LIMBO’ EP (2015). The project is undeniably Pell’s most mature and truthful album to date. The album documents how Pell has grown since his last musical release, pulling inspiration from Pell’s different life transitions such as heartbreak, working with a label again, and witnessing his friends starting to move on with their lives with traditional jobs, while Pell continues to live his dream as a rapper.
“I ultimately decided to name my debut album ‘Gravity’ on the idea of staying grounded. I’ve been working on this project since my ‘Girasoul’ EP in 2016 and during this time went through a lot of big changes in my life,” expresses Pell. “‘Gravity’ is also a metaphor for facing reality instead of faking reality, which is what I’ve been met with often since I moved to LA. I’m much more honest in my music than I was before because I now feel I have more life experience through self-discovery. New Orleans is a big part of my identity so I’m carrying that with me in this project and not forgetting where I came from.”
