New Video: Samantha Crain – Killer

SamanthaCrain_bySamLamb

Killer, the new video from singer-songwriter Samantha Crain, presents a narrative on the police brutality that is directed at people of colour, and through it, the viewer is challenged to speak up in opposition to the injustice and inequality that has been long unacknowledged, but now validated by cell phone videos and social media

Directed by Houston-based filmmakers Weston Getto Allen and Dorian Electra, the video was inspired by Michael Brown, who was brutally gunned down on a Ferguson, MO street by police officer Darren Wilson, Freddie Gray’s “rough ride” in a Baltimore police van that led to his traumatic death, and John Crawford, shot by police in an Ohio Walmart while facing away from the officers, on his cell phone, holding a toy BB gun he had picked up off a store shelf

Take a watch below…

Killer is taken from Crain’s latest record Under Branch & Thorn & Tree,
