Bosco Celebrates ‘Indie Atlanta’ in Quirky Visual for ‘Castles’ [WATCH]
Bosco is an R&B singer from Atlanta bringing a new sound that she has dubbed “R&B meets Americana meets chillwave.” Her new video for “Castles” is a lo-fi, quirky spectacle featuring different collages of images of clouds, skulls and space.
“[It's] Lo-fi meets DIY meets historic preservation meets cut-and-paste," Bosco told Vogue about the video.
Shot in and around Atlanta, the clip represents what Bosco calls “indie Atlanta,” an alternative to what the city's is mostly known for today, trap music. R&B duo St. Beauty, from Janelle Monae’s Wondaland imprint, also appear in the video to sing harmonies and look fabulous at various locations in the ATL.
Bosco, herself, is also looking fierce with her blonde-dreadlocked hair and her pink fur jacket (designed by Blood & Honey). “I just felt like a boss! I love how fur feels on my skin,” she said of her furry accessory. “Your wardrobe can speak volumes before you even open your mouth."
Another great aspect of the video is that it was directed by a woman, Lacey Duke, and assisting her was a female production crew. “Everybody was a woman of color except the DP - that’s what I’m most excited about,” she said. “Right now, more than ever, our voice as an African American or woman of color is important. We can be just as great as anybody else, and we [decide] what we represent.”
Talk about girl power!
