Rising Rapper-singer Ivy Sole releases the video for her song “Backwoods” and it features fellow Philadelphia based artist Anyee Wright. The song (Produced by CRO & Corey Smith-west) is a reflective record where Ivy looks back at her teenage years during high school and all the drama that comes with the raging hormones. She dwells on the typical teenage shenanigans and also questions the rationale behind it from an introspective point of view.
The Brothers Ed directed video showcases the duo on a stakeout in Ivy’s Toyota 4Runner and keeping the lookout for an apparent heist. With spunky animations and a couple of thought-provoking messages, the video strikes the perfect balance of lighthearted fun and intellectually stimulating. Much like the song itself, Ivy brings an understated cool and intensely contemplative approach to the visual, challenging her audience just as much as she’s entertaining them.
“Backwoods” is taken from her upcoming full-length studio album, OVERGROWN, out September 18th on Les Fleurs Records.
