London Kyle impresses on new visual.
We all know how dangerous our inner turmoil can be for us to cope with, but putting it out there for the world to witness is a whole other skirmish. That’s why it’s a pleasure for me to write this piece on London Kyle‘s new video “Dead & Gone.”
The hauntingly beautiful visual was shot in a cemetery and captures how intense his strife has been. The chorus repeats “Why do they only miss you when you’re dead and gone? Why do they only love you when you’re dead and gone?” accurately illustrating his mindset throughout life. However, with God on his side he’s persevered and can now reflect.
He sings along as scary figures walk slowly behind him, displaying how he’s made it out of the internal warfare and can look back at how far he’s come. Videographers Daniel VillaSenor and Adam VillaSenor couldn’t have done a better job in terms of video quality. The imagery and narrative is both sharp and crystal clear. The haunting part comes in the images where Kyle has blood dripping from his eyes and mouth, showing us just how deep he’d gotten into the evil he was experiencing. The zombie-looking folk pull him into the darkness as he drops his rosary.
The Huntington, California native got his officially start back in 2012 as the lead singer of Jamie’s Elsewhere. He’d eventually step out on his own and have his son, whom inspired the name he goes by today. He truly wears his heart on his sleeve through his music, combining elements of R&B and Soul. His most recent project Zero released in 2018 to positive reception, lauded for being so relatable and vulnerable.
It’s not pretty to face the demons in our lives, but upon doing so we come out on the other side optimistic, inspired, and able to encourage. Surely not an easy thing to do, but when done right it can result in this. Check out the video for “Dead & Gone” above.
