Brother duo, Kingsley and Benjamin of The Cavemen. are something like new school pioneers in the industry at the moment, except their version is a fusion of improvisation, creativity, and appreciation of heritage. Their acclaimed debut album, Roots, speaks to this and is the foundation on which they have been rapidly building their careers. This month, they carry on with the acknowledgment of their heritage in the video for the pensive Beautiful Rain, one of the finer tracks on Roots.
Granville Wilson directs performances as compelling as the entreaties the duo renders on the song. Rife with shots of them in the rain and sounds of thunder that serve as the perfect backdrop to their supplication, the video is a combination of everything their brand represents, culture, futurism, and experimentalism.
