This New Oddisee Video Might Make You Dizzy

Oddisee is ramping up to release his latest solo album The Good Fight, and after getting a preview at SXSW I think his fans are in for a treat. He’s just dropped the new video to “CounterClockwise” which he says  “is about being there for people & them working against you as a result. Becoming the bearer of their problems because they know you can handle it.”

Director Brandon Black employed some interesting camera tricks to bring this clock with no arms to life:

In order to visually represent this idea director Brandon Black and Director of Photography Zack Schamberg filmed Oddisee walking backwards throughout multiple boroughs in New York over several nights. Then they reversed the footage to make everyone else move backwards. Next the director shot the footage at night but boosted the light to appear as though it was day in order to add to the disorienting affect, making night seem like day, and forward seem like backwards.

Oddisee will be hitting the road to promote The Good Fight, which drops on May 5th. Check out the tour dates below:
