(FROM ARTIST REP)
Portland R&B artist Eso.Xo.Supreme is starting off the year with a bang celebrating the release of his official music video “Martina.” Produced by #The80’s and appearing on his recent EP, Lonely Ghost, Eso continues to raise the bar with every visual he drops giving his listeners a look at the man behind the music. Directed by Thomas Dierikx (Shiner Films), “Martina” is on point aesthetically mixing psychoactive visuals with crisp and clean coloring. After having a breakout 2017, Eso.Xo.Supreme is gearing up to take things up another level in the new year. Watch “Martina” and be sure to stream Eso.Xo.Supreme’s new project Lonely Ghost as well!
“Martina” was one of the standouts from Lonely Ghost, partly because of its catchy chorus and smooth instrumental. Putting those elements to video can be a daunting task, though. I mean, for example, how does one capture a chorus in a somewhat abstract video without being pretty to-the-point? With that said, the trippy, colorful visuals help add another dimension to the song about his M.O. and the woman he’s getting the best time from. While I’m not a pill popper, I can appreciate the track on that level still, as it’s pretty accessible and doesn’t dwell on/straight up advocate for its drug use (outside of the visuals being pretty psychoactive, as the submission piece said). Check out the visuals below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
