By the time Los Angeles-based artist Grayson premiered their first solo single, “Brother,” they had already lived multiple lives as a model, a stylist, and an indie pop bandleader.
Today (Nov. 5), the non-binary singer-songwriter unveiled the gorgeous, lonesome music video for “Brother.”
“‘Brother’ is about the sometimes chaotic relationship with yourself, and everyone else,” they told Billboard. “I have inhabited so many projects and versions of myself through the years that this feels like a long time coming but such a short time in comparison. I can’t wait for it to be heard and in the world. This song really was the start of me.”
Grayson’s voice layers one-by-one on “Brother,” building and blossoming into something transcendent as they meld into a singular harmony. “Do you think you will come to forgive me?” they sing, perhaps to themselves, perhaps to everyone else.
Grayson stands alone on rocky cliffs in the black-and-white visual directed by Alix Spence and Cameron Dutra, waves cresting gently atop one another and seagulls fly in the distance.
