Frank Ocean Ft. Tyler, The Creator & Jay Z – Biking
Frank Ocean drops an intimate clip of Tyler, The Creator & Jay-Z assisted “Biking.”
Frank Ocean is clearly an auteur in every sense, a fact attested by his decision to release an abridged, remixed video of his latest single. The clip features a series of mysterious scenes strung together with no apparent narrative, opting instead for an ambiguous visual interpretation of the track’s vibe. Tyler’s verse gets the spotlight here, and the original instrumental is heavily stripped down, re-purposing the song with a minimalist washed out vibe. Complete with an intimate handheld aesthetic and symbolism-laden imagery (a goldfish in a bag framed by sunlight), this brief “Biking” video is a mysterious, nostalgic vignette.
