Music Video Monday: Blvck Hippie


Music Video Monday feels your pain.

Memphis Flyer writer Jesse Davis recently interviewed Josh Shaw of Blvck Hippie about recording "Bunkbed" at Sun Studios during the pandemic. “So many greats have been here. I hope we don’t suck,” said Shaw.

Good news: It doesn't suck. Natalie Hawkins' lyric video highlights the angst in "Bunkbed", a song Afropunk called the "feel bad song of the summer." But Shaw didn't write the song, heavy with longing for an illusory better time, to bum you out. "Music is one of the things that can make everybody feel that everything is going to be okay," he told Davis.
