Taylor Locke (ex-Rooney) just premiered his brand new music video, “Call Me Kuchu” on Purevolume. The track, from Locke’s new solo album, Time Stands Still, showcases Locke’s lyrical prowess beautifully.
“Call Me Kuchu” is soulful, and reminiscent of classic rock. Inspired by the documentary of the same name, the song and video come together in a stunning metaphor. The film shed light on the lack of basic human rights in Uganda, where being gay is considered criminal. The music video, directed by art/editorial photographer Logan White, acts as a satire, featuring Dr. Kuchu, a turn-of-the-century magician and snake oil profiteer, who is a metaphor for the…let’s call them “misguided,” self-deluded politicians and religious zealots. Edited by Emmy-nominated Dakota Solt (who plays Dr. Kuchu’s assistant), the video is something you just have to see.
