Gramatik Premieres Official Video For "Brave Men"
Gramatik, one of the biggest contenders in today's electro-soul and funk-influenced movement, has just released the official music video for the first track off his latest album The Age Of Reason.
The music video, directed by Joe Zohar, depicts the struggles of a young woman who publicly faces domestic abuse, and uses an underground all-girl fight club as a vice to release her inner-rage. Nina Varano, the actress who plays the protagonist in the music video, demonstrates in her performance that even though her "cure" to her daily abuse is both secretive and brutal, it still supplies her with the confidence and strength to overcome the damaged life that she inhabits each day. Some viewers might seem confused by the intentions of the video amidst its dramatic and violent content, but we think it serves as a powerful lesson to those struggling that we must all fight to survive. Watch the world premier of the video below and let us know what you think.
The Age of Reason has recieved over 2 million downloads since its release of January 25, and will continue to be heard as he ventures in the summer leg of his tour. If you haven't heard it already, be sure to download The Age of Reason from an exclusive BitTorrent Bundle.
