Loyle Carner
"Sun of Jean"
5 mins 07s

UK Promos

Rare is the rap video you can show your dear old mum. Credit to Loyle Carner Bullion’s Joao Retorta then for achieving such a feat. This ‘Sun of Jean’ promo brings mothers and sons together for a cuppa, a jigsaw, and a night on the sofa.

Languid and personable, MC Carner vocalizes an unshakable bond - “Cause ain't no love inside my heart… except for my mother and my diehards”. Evocative visuals bathe each scene in comforting hues, while Slaves fans will appreciate a bedroom cameo from drummer Isaac Holman.

But it’s Carner’s mum, Jean, who steals the show. While he plays keepy-uppy in a Nineties England top, she pays tribute to her son - all grown up, but still her “band-aid boy”. A disarming guest vocalist.

In Georgia Hudson's promo for 'Isle of Arran', Loyle Carner walks through the corridors of an unearthly hospital on his way to visit his newborn child. The track is all about the importance of fathers being there for their children, and Hudson does a great job of showing his conviction as he cradles the baby in the fading light of the maternity ward windows.

"Stars And Shards"

The immediate intro to 'Stars And Shards' sounds like a King Krule track with its mournful, reverb-y guitars... but then Loyle Carner's vocals kick in and you're immediately drawn into the tale he weaves of a friend who has taken a wrong turn in life. His lyrics are inventive, intricate, complex; and the striking animated video by Anna Ginsberg and Gworge complements the song perfectly.
