Music Video in a Day: Grey Granite's "Holy Jewels and Ghost Jems"

Running Bodies Productions are back with another installment in our Music Video in a Day Series. This time Grey Granite's returns to the series with "Holy Jewels and Ghost Jems," a track off the next installment of his Rich in the Blood Series. He first appeared back in October with the video for "Treasure Town."

 

Granite floats over the top of Lonegevity's (one half of Hinx Jones) skittering beat here. "I do what I gotta do/ get mine," he breathes soft as air over the clipped and ticking eighth-note hat. There's horn swells and an occasional poke-through of what sounds like a banjo sample, and it all works in service of tossing around Granite's flow like stitches of fabric.

 

There's two visual moments that leap out hard. They're both the same shot: Granite looking to the right of the frame with the city to his left, setting up his profile against the city. The first time we see the shot there's dark clouds off to the side, just edging in. By the time the shot comes up again a bit later in the video, they're taking up nearly all of the backdrop. A storm is coming in and Granite and you and me and the film crew are all just chilling on a rooftop. Chill.

 

In addition to appearing in our MVIAD series and putting out his own music, Granite also helms our Purple Pyramid Club Podcast series. Check out back episodes here.
