KAYTRANADA Releases Yakuza Inspired Visuals for ‘Look Easy’ ft. Lucky Daye
Evan Dale // Dec 11, 2020
Never without his surprises, KAYTRANADA returns to the screen with his Yakuza-style inspired set of visuals for Summer smash, Look Easy, featuring Lucky Daye. The Montreal tropical house overlord, on the heels of a trio of Grammy nominations, does what he always does: takes everything in a new direction. If at first, Look Easy doesn’t feel like a music video, that’s by design. There are moments where it feels like the whole thing is simply a sample of some larger Japanese piece of cinema, and when one realizes that is in fact the concept, Look Easy emerges as a shining achievement. Set in Tokyo with videography that could highlight anything from Japanese futurism cinema to John Wick to CyberPunk, the Look Easy video follows, actress, Luli Shioi on a tale of redemption.
It’s a remarkably immersive piece of videography for a music video that also puts into perspective just how well KAYTRANADA’s sound travels not only through the world of film, but through the world in general. Keep an eye out for more as this video, and Look Easy as a single, could both be preludes to something larger in the works.
