Louis Baker Shares Sophisticated Single 'Black Crow' + Video

Thursday 3rd May, 2018 12:09PM

Wellington songsmith Louis Baker has lifted the lid on his latest track ‘Black Crow’, the artist's first single since last year’s excellent ‘Addict’. The tune centres around Baker's soulful vocal tones which are accented by subtle funk guitars over grooving bass lines to surprisingly polished effect, considering the number was penned and produced in Sydney in the space of six hours. Helming production duties was Grammy-nominated Steve Rusch, who has worked alongside the likes of Solange and Miguel. Baker is heading to Europe for a sixteen date tour, he shared some insight into the lyrics’ conception...

“The idea of bathing one's hands in indigo came about through an old Japanese proverb I read. I was fascinated with its idea- that a piece of fabric gets a deeper and richer colour tone if you repeatedly dye it. The proverb has a number of different meanings, but to me it is a metaphor about life, experience and growing wise with age.”

‘Black Crow’ also comes with a gorgeously shot music video which directed by Chris Graham who’s shot clips for Scribe, Smashproof, Bic Runga and Trinity Roots. Check it out below...
