Following its recent release, Moss Kena today drops the bold and powerful video for his latest single ‘Begging’, check it out here.
The new visuals follow the announcement of Moss Kena’s UK headline tour. Through December, Moss will take his live show across the UK starting in Manchester (The Eagle Inn Dec 8th), he’ll then pass through Leeds (Headrow House Dec 9th) and Glasgow (The Garage Dec 10th) before closing in the capital with a show at the Courtyard on December 12th.
The video for ‘Begging’ features an avant-garde physical performance from Moss and seven highly stylised synchronised dancers, the striking visuals embody the meaningful lyrics of the track and encompass Moss Kena’s fierce and emotive attitude towards music.
Set on a stark deserted beach in Botany Bay with only Moss and a handful of dancers clad in washed-out pastel tones, the simple proxemics of the video are embellished by bold choreography with the dancer’s succinct movement depicting the lyrics and bringing the story of the track to life.
Speaking of the video Moss said “The video really captures the emotion of the song, strength and honesty, with dancers personifying parts of myself, showing that inner conflict, the ocean really representing the powerful and swelling depths of emotion.”
The simplistic set and striking choreography are both raw and gritty showcasing Moss in an incredibly artistic light and asserting his place as one of pop’s most forward-thinking rising stars. ‘Begging’ sees Moss Kena using his voice to speak on real feelings and emotions, paving the way as part of a new wave of pop artists who are using music to speak on subjects male artists have traditionally shied away from.
Co-produced by Grammy-nominated and Brit award-winning producer Mark Crew (Rag’n’Bone Man, Katy Perry), Bastille frontman Dan Smith and Dan Priddy (James Arthur) ‘Begging’ is a pop-tinged stadium-ready anthem that delves deep into themes of forgiveness and emotive honesty. Offering moments of tender intimacy with empowering harmony work, the new record shows Moss in a more vulnerable light, using the track as a way of letting fans into his personal life enabling them to connect with his music on a deeper level.
