Not too long ago afrofuturist R&B artist SassyBlack released her second solo album New Black Swing, and now her totally retro-inspired new video for “Glitches” just hit the web.
“Glitches” is co-directed by SassyBlack herself, along with Sofia Lee and features literal glitchy visuals reminiscent of 80’s MTV music videos.
SassyBlack stars in the vid rocking vintage-looking hip hop threads along with co-star Elena Flory-Barnes as they make their way around a minimalist set featuring just a couch, rug, lamp and sometimes guitar.
If “Glitches” is representative of what’s to come from SassyBlack’s
New Black Swing, we’re definitely in for a treat.
