I tend to associate Toronto with R&B, but Clairmont The Second shows (in the most demonstrative way possible) there’s more than just singers up north. The T-Dot emcee makes quite the LL debut with an impressive, visually-assisted single in “DUN.”
From the jump, “Dun” carries a brutish tone with an off-kilter beat laced by a dizzying whirr. Clairmont matches that energy wrangling the beat with his potent flow and brash attitude, perfect for expressing his “fed-up-ness” with lines like “DUN letting you slide/ Dun going outside” (#socialdistancing). The striking power of “DUN” is magnified by the visuals, which are directed and edited by Clairmont The Second himself (with cinematography help from Beee). Almost like two videos in one, the videos match the frenetic energy of the song by drawing your eye back and forth with some really amazing shots.
I was super impressed by this clean (yet raw as fuck) offering and am definitely looking forward to more from Clairmont!
