Tyler, The... Director?

Oct 31, 2013

For those familiar with the work of Tyler, The Creator—the divisive rapper whose Odd Future crew rose to prominence at the close of the 00's with a slew of jarring mixtapes centered around murder, mutilation and mayhem—the new video for "Glowing" might be a bit of a surprise.  Directed by Tyler for an as-yet anonymous group, the video follows the trials and tribulations of a couple of young lovers through times of both peace and struggle; it's a marked departure from the pill-popping hedonism of Odd Future's videos, and one that suggests a softer, more emotional side to the controversial musician/director.  You can stream the anonymous band's "Glowing" below: to learn more, head over to All Songs Considered.
