Cleveland songstress Lorine Chia delivers a heartfelt animated video for the first single off of her forthcoming EP Sweet Noise. The DreamBear and Daniel Cordero directed visual portrays a scenario of a young black man being gunned down by the police; while Lorine’s character fears she will be the next victim of brutality as she was targeted while driving down the street.
I live in constant fear that I or someone close to me could be the next victim of police brutality or racial profiling. Then on top of that there is the pressure from my peers on whether I’m cool enough to engage with or not. Trying to involve you in drama when it’s unnecessary or provoking you to anger just because you don’t believe in the same things they do. It always seems like people set the most unrealistic expectations for you and try to keep you in a negative space while all you’re trying to do is just live. – Lorine Chia
