In anticipation of his upcoming The Good Fight LP, Maryland-based artist Oddisee has released a video for the single “Counter-Clockwise.” The black and white video is directed by Brandon Black. It shows Oddisee make his way through New York City neighborhoods, as the world behind him unfolds in reverse. He wanders slowly, with an inquisitive expression, as if stuck in another dimension of Manhattan away from the crowds and ambulance sirens, where one can truly examine the world around them.
“Stay a while and take a break,” he sings. In Oddisee-fied Manhattan we just might. The slowed-down pace of the video is an excellent canvas to present his crisp rhymes and breathless beats.
The Good Fight comes out May 5. Enjoy the video for “Counter-Clockwise” below:
