See Blues Savior Kingfish’s Trippy New Video

Kingfish, the debut album from Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, the 20-year-old blues prodigy who made Rolling Stone’s Hot List last year, is due May 17th, featuring the Buddy Guy duet “Fresh Out.” And while Ingram has already seen multiple clips of his live performances go viral (and appeared on season two of Netflix’s Luke Cage), he’s also made his first real music video, for his hard-grooving track “Outside This Town,” thanks to animator Lyndon Barrois.

The ingenious stop-motion video, which uses sculptures made out of gum wrappers, was created entirely on iPhones, and took Barrois over six months to finish. “Kingfish operates at genius level,” Barrois says. “Offstage he’s a sweet 20-year-old kid. Onstage he’s much older. He channels the music.”
