Jez Dior’s self-proclaimed Grunge Rap genre is coming along slowly but surely. He’s released a handful of singles since undergoing the transition sonically — all of which have been well-received. The latest entry into the Californian’s new career phase is “Clean Me Up,” a new song for which an accompanying visual was released today.
The song itself seems to refer to addiction — a theme that’s been prevalent in a lot of Dior’s music. What takes the track to another level seldom achieved is its visual.
In the “Clean Me Up” music video, an uncredited actor gives a remarkable performance as a mysterious bearded man who is dealing with an unspecified addiction. After an apparent Alcoholics Anonymous session where Jez makes an appearance, the man is followed through a series of events that leave much up to the viewer to decipher. The video eventually wraps back around to the setting of the AA meeting, but it turns out to be far from the somber event originally presented… then things get weird again.
“Clean Me Up” will appear on Jez Dior’s The Funeral, a new EP that is set to release November 18th.
