Chicago native theMIND, who’s work has been featured exclusively alongside the likes of Mick Jenkins, Vic Mensa, and Kirk Knight, is a captivating singer and songwriter whose talents are currently bursting at the seams.
For his latest release, “Mercury Rising” theMIND links up with entertaining artist and designer KidSuper to direct a wonderfully executed claymation short film shot completely in stop-motion. The visual follows a young Philadelphia girl with a balloon strapped wagon and a young Chicago boy bicycling through their hometown streets before both children take off into the sky and meet each other in space. This beautifully intricate tale fits seamlessly with the help of Donnie Trumpet, Sylvie Grace, and the graceful yet other worldy production of THEMpeople that snuggles up closely with theMIND’s cosmic tale of pushing the limits and following your dreams.
Take a look and cop this cut on theMIND’s forthcoming project, Summer Camp.
