Night Street/Interscope Records alt-pop artist K.Flay has released the video for ‘Not In California’. Directed by Clara Aranovich, the video comes on the same day that the United Nations Climate Action Summit begins in New York City, and addresses “our collective inaction on climate change, and the sense of disbelief that I think so many of us feel,” The GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist reveals.
“We’re looking out at a world that is getting hotter and scarier by the day, and still nothing seems to compel the government to take action. The video imagines a trash universe in which social isolation and littering and bad policing are the status quo — a universe that doesn’t feel so different from ours now.”
‘Not In California’ perfectly showcases K.Flay’s ability to deliver razor-sharp, brutally honest lyrics and spitfire rhymes. “The babies all cry as the scientists try but the politicians keep on screaming. I’d like a road map, like to turn the clock back but the internet it keeps on freezing,” she sings.
‘Not In California’ is from her third full-length album Solutions, which dropped earlier this year to critical acclaim. It was championed by the likes of the Observer, Sunday Times, Dork, Gay Times, Financial Times, Rock Sound, Classic Pop, Nylon, NPR, Under The Radar, The New York Times and many more.
It’s the third to be released chronologically the album, yet narratively it serves as the prequel to ‘Bad Vibes’, revealing how and why she was captured, with ‘Sister’ being the closing chapter, where our heroine escapes captivity with her female companion, only to find themselves in a world where everyone is moving backward.
K.Flay is currently in the midst of The Solutions Tour, which kicked off earlier this month. Following a 19-city run in North America, she’ll venture to the UK performing in Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester and London before heading off across Europe.
