Matthew E. White has shared a new music video for ‘Vision’ from his album Fresh Blood released earlier this year on Domino.  The groovy, horn-driven track gets a heartwarming film treatment from filmmaker Clara Aranovich  and features Edi Gathegi (Twilight, Justified, X-Men) and Caitlin Stasey (Reign, Please Like Me, Neighbours). Nowness, who co-produced the video, is streaming it on their site HERE.

Of the Vision music video, director Clara Aranovich says:

This track captivated me immediately upon first hearing it on an indie radio station in LA and I knew instantly I wanted to direct a music video for it. I’m generally more drawn towards narrative videos and had been doing some research into the life experiences of the visually impaired (believe it or not, it was not the title "Vision" that inspired the idea of exploring blindness but rather a coincidence). The song lends itself so beautifully to the growth and conclusion of a complete story that the writing process was breezy. And, as is the norm with me, what started as an intimate realistic story turned into something a bit absurd and surrealist and about so much more for me.”

The Richmond, Virginia-based singer, bandleader and modern soul visionary released his second album Fresh Blood to widespread acclaim earlier this year, earning accolades like “excellent” from NPR Music, “delightfully warm” (Spin), “hot-buttered gorgeousness” (The Evening Standard), and “a delicious second helping” (The Guardian).
