Cornwall-based instrumentalist and producer Chalky is no stranger to jazz overtures. Hot off the heels of his debut LP Second Beach, Chalky dives into the album’s visual influence, delivering an introspective journey into the track “One Long Summer”; bursting with lush textures and stereophonic psychedelia, the track is a latin-jazz fusion of note relationships and instrumental call and response.
These elements undergo a further fusion through the soft-edged coastal aesthetic in the music video. The choice of location in Looe, Cornwall, is an ode to the hazy nostalgia of Chalky's youth. In order to properly flesh out his audio-visual headspace, Chalky enlisted the assistance of his childhood friend, Joseph Dunn, who recently earned accolades for producing Yussef Dayes’ “Love Is The Message” music video. Altogether, the package is another mark of Chalky’s burgeoning artistry through freeform music. For those interested in soaking in the rest of Second Beach, you can read our full review here.
