Video Premiere: Kae Sun 'When The Pot'

Watch Ontario/Ghanaian pop singer Kae Sun's 60s-influenced black-and-white video for "When The Pot."

Ontario/Ghanaian singer Kae Sun, one of the brightest prospects in our afro-tinged pop sphere, twists and gyrates amidst recycled 1960s footage of baby-faced revelers in the black-and-white video for "When The Pot." The staccato-riffed track is a jolt of pop energy from the get-go, only resting for a dub breakdown around the 1:50 minute mark. Grab "When The Pot," which will be featured on Kae Sun's upcoming Afriyie LP, on iTunes and Urbnet. For more Kae Sun, check out his video of the year pick for "Ship And The Globe." Watch the Charles Officer-directed video below.
