Ariano & Jade River “Reasons” [Video]
SoCal hip hop icon Ariano and Portland producer Jade River bring the fire once again with the release of their second single, “Reasons” from their third album, Fear is a Liar (Rockets).
“Reasons” is an intimate portrait of being caught in a state of limbo while in the throes of missing a less than truthful lover. Jade’s guitar-laden production lays an almost cheery backdrop to Ariano’s wistful singing, heavy with longing and heartache.
Created by the multi-talented Gifted Glitch, the video for “Reasons” is a fully animated lyric video where the beauty of the video is in its perceived simplicity. Every frame is a green background with the lyrics scrolling across the screen, complimented by unexpected visuals that subtly mirror the lyrics themselves.
