PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.


Last month, Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange) delivered high-energy '80s nostalgia with his video for "You're Not Good Enough," and while nostalgia remains at the core of his latest release, the artist's discovered new-found strength in simplicity with "High Street," a track featuring UK rapper Skepta. The video follows the two in their London hometown, capturing the realest parts of the city without the gloss -- a dimly lit underpass, the back of a city bus, a neighborhood park and a bustling sidewalk late at night. It's a subtle, but fitting treatment that beautifully plays off Skepta's reflective verses about days past and fighting for success.
