Acclaimed multi-Grammy nominated, Brit winning producer, songwriter and artist Bryan Wilson (Beach Boys jokes welcome!) aka Boom Dice shares the music video for his new single, ‘Embers’, featuring vocals from RnB singer Sola.
Capturing the monotony of isolation and littered with political and cultural references, the music video perfectly captures the feeling of discontent and anger conveyed in the lyrics. Speaking of the video, Sola says:
“I created this video with my partner, and I wanted to capture the different emotions and experiences I had during this pandemic spent indoors, while expressing it in a bit more of a lighthearted way. Since we all already know the severity of the situation we all have found ourselves in, I wanted to show my personal discontent, anger, upset at the whole situation and the governments who have failed to protect people throughout the pandemic, like I do in the lyrics, but in a way that was more accessible to people through touches of levity. I also wanted to show a bit of the reality of how many lives were lived during lockdowns, just day-by-day on the couch watching the world come undone on our screens.”
Famed for his work with the likes of Sofi Tukker, Stormzy, Wolf Alice, Disclosure, Lianne La Havas and Plan B, just to name a few, Boom Dice’s work truly has the ability to transcend all genres. Known within the industry as the ‘Finisher’, he gets the job done at any stage of a project and is behind hundreds of millions of streams, huge sync placements, as well as numerous gold and platinum sales certifications globally.
Constantly evolving, Bryan adopted the stage name ‘Boom Dice’ and founded ‘Boom Dice Presents’, a label and artist showcase platform designed to champion aspiring and established artists. On ‘Embers’, he has partnered with electronic R’n’B artist Sola. A captivating vocalist and performer, she combines the electronic sounds of Banks and NAO with the emotional conviction of Emilie Nicolas and Solange, and those influences really shine through on the new track.
Boom Dice picked up his first Grammy nomination for mixing Sofi Tukker’s dance classic ‘Drinkee’ at the 59th annual Grammy Awards followed by another nod at the 61st Grammy Awards for their debut album ‘Treehouse’ in the ‘Best Dance/Electronic Album’ category. He won a Brit Award in the ‘Album Of The Year’ category for his work on Stormzy’s No.1, Brit & Ivor Novello award winning, Mercury Prize-nominated album ‘Gang Signs and Prayer’. This year his work picked up another Grammy nomination in the ‘Best Rap Album’ category for his work on Jay Electronica’s “A Written Testimony”
