Genre-obliterating artist Boslen has returned with a cinematic, visceral music video for “NIGHTFALL.” The trap-infused track, which sports a stunning feature from rising South Carolina artist Dro Kenji, is the final song to get the video treatment from his debut album DUSK to DAWN, which came out in August via Chaos Club Digital/Capitol Records.
The moody “NIGHTFALL” visual directed by Mike Tate and executive produced by Natasha Dion was filmed in Los Angeles, but feels as if it takes place in a hazy, red-tinged underworld. It’s an appropriate energy for the loneliness in the lyrics, which find Boslen enduring quiet nights as he works to expose lies, and encourages someone to reveal their scars to him. The clip finds Boslen and Kenji wandering around an empty, lavish mansion—a perfect setting for a song about the cost of investing your time and energy into someone who can’t, or won’t, reciprocate.
But for Boslen himself, the point doesn’t seem to be the success—he just wants his art to connect with people: “I really want people to notice the true feeling that this project cohesively can convey. I’m trying to make generational music that lasts after I’m dead.” With videos as cinematic as “NIGHTFALL” and projects as moving as DUSK to DAWN, he’s well on his way. “NIGHTFALL” closes out the DUSK to DAWN chapter as Boslen gears up for an even bigger 2022.
