It’s never too late to put out a music video. HUMANS, the Vancouver-based duo, premiered the visuals for “Felony” on April 2. The supplemental aids come two years after the track’s debut on their 2018 project, Going Late.
Although the video is a bit tardy, it is worth the wait. In addition to the typical LA lifestyle we’ve seen countless times, “Felony” features well-placed accents of red, and a young woman (Jessica Lynn Parsons) committing random acts of douchery. From kicking sand into a man’s face, to knocking a red cup out of another person’s hand, she seems to resemble the chaotic nature of “Florida-man” rather than any LA caricature. And though the song is titled “Felony,” most of Parsons’ actions fall short of even a misdemeanor.
Even if she were to be accused of disorderly conduct, the charges ought to be dropped at the sight of that awesome jacket Parsons rocks. The iconic red “HUMANS” denim jacket makes its second appearance of the year. The first apparition came in February in the “Noose” music video. “Noose” accompanied “Felony” on the 2018 album, landing both productions in the running for the “Better Late Than Never” Award.
To be fair, there is no better time to drop visuals that have been sitting in the storage unit or waiting for the final render. Now more than ever, people will be at home looking for something new to save them from the monotony of quarantine. And with film productions shut down, the competition will be slim to none.
HUMANS really have their foot on our necks this year. Their latest song, “Beggin” was released February 28, and since Going Late was the last album they put out, it’s safe to say they’re gearing up for the next collection.
