Peep This: Phony Ppl – “Why iii Love The Moon”

2015 was a great year for music, and one that can’t be overshadowed or overlooked by the swaths of To Pimp a Butterfly’s and Ego Deaths is independent Brooklyn band Phony Ppl’s fourth project, Yesterday’s Tomorrow. A collective of longtime homies that just so happened to make masterful genre-blending music together, Yesterday’s Tomorrow evokes blissful tales of life and love through the tenors of funk, soul and hip-hop. The first single off of the project, “Why iii Love the Moon,” dropped its visuals today, working in conjunction with projection art collective, Dawn of Man. The song soundtracks the band as they cruise through an unforeseen sect of Brooklyn, with colorful backdrops of their world — the sky, the moon, plant life and their own faces — are imposed on BK’s concrete and brick jungle. According to Fader, the projections signify that Brooklyn is changing and each member owes a piece of themselves to the fair city that they call home. Peep the video below.
