Angel Haze’s ‘A Tribe Called Red’ Video Emphasizes Her Skill
Black-and-white clip for 'Dirty Gold' track has style, but the substance prevails
Back in December, Angel Haze released the song “A Tribe Called Red” just days before leaking her debut album Dirty Gold as a “fuck you” to her label. And now, as if to commemorate the LP’s original March release date, she’s back with a spare, black-and-white video for the track — which, yes, was produced by the SXSW-showcasing Canadian crew A Tribe Called Red — emphasizing her breakneck delivery above all else. Standing in an open space that’s only adorned by LED strips on the floor, Haze gets across her message without any flourishes: “Only you can make a difference in your own life.” It’s a barebones treatment compared to her moving video for the anti-child abuse “Battle Cry,” but effective nonetheless.
