Watch Cheyenne Mize’s Arresting ‘Among the Grey’ Video
Title track from album out June 25 on Yep Roc
In 2009, Cheyenne Mize released a 10-inch titled Among the Gold with Bonnie “Prince” Billy. But the younger Louisville, Kentucky-born singer and songwriter’s upcoming album, Among the Grey, is due out on June 25 via Yep Roc. The painstaking video for the LP’s unhurried psych-blues title track covers gold, gray, and all shades in between. Ryan Daly who directs the Louisville Film Society and Flyover Film Festival and is also known as cinemanonymous, hand-tinted the 16mm film frame by frame. It shows, as whorls of color splash across monochromatic performance footage and shots of an umbrella that soon takes a tumble. The song, driven by Mize’s forceful vocals and a tight band’s roadhouse propulsion, likewise finds human color in a dusty environment.
