U.K artist Piers James takes lucid dreaming to a new, commanding level with the video for his track “Samurai.” The video plays on the stealth and ferocity of the warrior, incorporating James’ own aesthetic ideals to bring to life the narrative of his subconscious. Featuring a well-blended mix of grime, hip-hop, and even a bit of reggae, Piers James maintains a fervid flow over a bed of jangly percussion, jazz-inspired bass lines, and eccentric electronics. Over the course of a few months, he has built a reputation for his thought-provoking lyrics and inspiring messages throughout the U.K. With recognition on BBC Radio 1 and Spotify playlist curation, the future is looking bright for Piers James. Take in the striking visuals of “Samurai” below.
