Jacob Banks Rises Against In "Chainsmoking" Video
Last month The Boy Who Cried Freedom was released, giving fans 5 songs from the soulful Jacob Banks. The opening track off of that EP, "Chainsmoking," has now gotten the music video treatment.
On the visual Banks can be quoted as saying it's “about resilience amongst the oppressed. It’s choosing to not give a shit, even when it hurts.” The genre blur of a song feels extra powerful when watching a man dressed in riot police gear abusing defenseless individuals. Eventually, the group resists and stands up against the violence.
