Like how they’s clothes change after exiting the building? It definitely defines the audio/visual of “Back in the Days.” First of all, the video unintentionally (yet brilliantly) follows the way Tree of Life progresses as a memory montage through various chopped, blurred, and quickly obscured profiles of each musician. Maybe it was intentional, but under a very convincing amateurish light. Second, the way in which the video was shot presents the song’s lack of interest in being over-the-top. And at the video’s end, it’s just them blokes, on stage, enjoying the “sou-ou-ong” because we all listening.
More so, they create symbiosis: Buggsy cutting lyrics with the video-frame cuts, Shadz vocalizing Joker’s woozy beat, and Scarz and Double (KHK-SP) subconsciously (maybe) repping egolessness. Scarz being driven by Joker on a motorcycle. Double (KHK-SP) looking off camera always, almost accidentally. Evey one at the concert with they hands up. “Joker,” *crosses arms*. Conclusion, @random lady in beginning, just let them dudes have fun. ‘Cause I’ll be having my fun November 8 when Joker’s debut album The Vision hits the US (November 7 in the UK) via 4AD.
