You've probably read Macbeth in school at some point but I doubt you've watched a portrayal quite like Justin Kurzel and Michael Fassbender's before. A visual masterclass, the acting, cinematography, direction, and what ever editing was necessary to do what they did throughout the film, are all stunning. In sum, the clip above shows Banquo's son, Fleance, picking up the slain Macbeth's sword; while the newly crowned Malcolm walks out of his throne room (although, I like to think of it as a flash-forward towards Banquo's son as an adult, having been crowned king and fulfilling the Witches' prophecy). I thought the vibe given by the visuals paired nicely with Black Atlass' "Tonight" — very menacing, yet beautiful.
Fool's Gold artist, Black Atlass, released the video to his newest song, "Haunted Paradise," yesterday and it fits perfectly. It's simple and cool: providing the corresponding mysterious and romantic atmosphere his voice conveys. Still though, I feel like few know about this guy and his sound which is disappointing. However, he has obtained some pretty big co-signs recently, so maybe I'm wrong and I just don't know people who listen to him like I do. His last project, Jade, still gets played 'round my way, too — check it out here.
Another vocalist making moves up north is this young man, Alex Fleming, who is known as Black Atlass. He released a short EP which was self-entitled about a year ago and has since signed with Fool's Gold Records. Montreal's Paul Labonté directed the video for "Paris" which depicts the 19-year-old playing the piano, and singing, intertwined with scenes of women perhaps thinking, or preparing, or maybe, falling.
