Earl fans pay attention.
Medhane is currently one of my favorite lyricists and I certainly cannot ignore how similar he is to Earl Sweatshirt. Atmospheric and lucid, Medhane has a hallmark cadence he takes up in a good amount of his tracks and this new music video, “WHISPERS / WALK WITH ME” is certainly no exception. Much like how Earl delivers his verses, Medhane’s instrumental selections are typically lively and low-fi with the same aura that modern-day Earl would hop on. These particular beats are provided by Bori and AFB respectively, as Medhane offers muffled, straight-forward lyricism throughout.
Devlin Claro-Resetar directed the whole visual from start to end as he methodically spotlights Medhane flowing to the camera while sitting on a couch in a New York apartment as he gets ready to get his day started. Medhane is then followed out to the street as the second part and song of the visual kick off with “WALK WITH ME” and as the title would suggest, the viewer goes on a side-by-side stroll with the emcee through the neighborhood.
