Childish Gambino and director Hiro Murai team up yet again to craft the visuals for “Sober”, our latest video of the week. Murai brings his usual sense of visual flair to the project (you may remember him as the director of Flying Lotus’ “Never Catch Me”), creating a subtle yet effective performance piece, made all the more impressive by the confined space within which it operates. Gambino (aka Donald Glover) meanwhile, displays the very particular brand of charisma and comic sensibility that’s made him so missed from our TV screens, while musically performing at the peak of his powers. “Sober” is off of the STN MTN / Kauai mixtape which dropped late last year, and continues Gambino’s trend of writing thematically deep, narrative hip hop / R&B songs – a trend we don’t mind in the least.
