“NIGHT RUNNING”
We’re on a night run
Boy you better hold your tongue
Talking like you coming from kingdom come
Rhythm and reeling
the feeling I’m riding
the sound to the ceiling
Never got no money
but I’m running from the gun
my engines flooded
cold blooded no money
drunk on something uh
Killing the moonlight
with daylight
Got my x ray eyes
and I’m feeling so fine

Night Running all night running
Star studded not far from it
We’re running all night running
Cold blooded all night running
Night running all night running
Star studded not far from it
Night running all night running
Cold blooded we’re all night running

We’re on the night shade
Tell me what we’re hiding from
Like someone could steal it
Are we waiting for some kind of feeling
Or saving it up for the morning?
Under cover
The cloak and dagger
Is there a creature in the attic
Are we for real yeah
Or just pretending
Will it burn it out by the morning

Night Running all night running
Star studded not far from it
We’re running all night running
Cold blooded all night running
Night running all night running
Star studded not far from it
Night running all night running
Cold blooded we’re all night running

We’re on a night run
No telling who we’re running from
In a world of secrets and demons and people hiding from the sun
Sending my message to everyone losing control
Better not stop till I get home
Sentimental flowers don’t grow
Got to live through tidal waves
And parishes and biblical floods
I got the Gris Gris love
And the streets in my blood
I’m on the final run
Falling in and out of love

Night Running all night running
Star studded not far from it
We’re running all night running
Cold blooded all night running
Night running all night running
Star studded not far from it
Night running all night running
Cold blooded we’re all night running

Black Madonna

Watch the new music video for “Black Madonna” now!

In a time where people are looking for connection more than ever, and with it not being possible, it forces a new perspective. This music video was directed by lead singer Matthew Shultz and edited entirely over Zoom during the quarantine/social distancing. The project started when COVID-19 began gaining traction and forced remote production so we repurposed a lot of existing never-before-seen footage/up-cycled content to make something new. Additionally, we worked with 15 collaborators over the past 8 weeks to have them contribute or create content, also while in isolation. The collaborators included some of the top up-and-coming photographers and directors across the globe (i.e. Josh Charow, Andrea Gavazzi, Landon Yost, Citizen Kane Wayne) all the way to an award-winning Guggenheim fellow and Academy Award-nominee, Kasumi.

Black Madonna

This piece, was composed with the intent of being. A question, or commentary. Humans throughout history, have experience fractures of heart, struggling with deep separation, shame and isolation. What is the depth of the pain, actions and reactions, each soul experience while dealing with these fractures, separations, isolations. Is there a light of love that shatters the shadows of hate? Truly heartbroken when pondering such vast adversity. And yet encouraged, there is great hope in the light of Love. Using film formats and various processing techniques of motion picture, diverse in time period and geographical point of origin, we framed them in the context of our current global circumstance. How the slightest micro-action can create an undercurrent of macro-emotional reaction contained in thought, and heart behind the eye. What happens when what is perceived as micro is macro? The face. Interfaces. Projections and reactions. If the eye is actually the lamp, knowing it is a lens, what if what is perceived to be light or illumination, within the eye, lamp (or entering the lens/perspective) is actually a complete or partial obstruction of light? Deep shadows. How great is that obstruction of view and what effect does it have on image? Individualized, localized, globalized, universally and Omni. Could the light of Love (seen and unseen) be the only uncsource of illumination in true balance, perfect, good enough to fill those fractures, causing the shadows of separation to rest. In light of Love, can life be seen more clearly, images of the present and past, being restored.

Social Cu(bes)
Digital or Physical,
This isolation is an illusion
Loves the only way

Big thanks to all who have contributed to this project so far, giving so much of themselves. More to come soon, so much love, with great hope, that this is the beginning of something beautiful, healing that is both restorative in heart and physical circumstance, having life lasting, life sustaining impact.
