ALL Lanes - New Video By Rafael vigilantics
Rafael Vigilantics’ new single, “All Lanes” laments the anonymity that accompanies a televised life, and the struggle to be more than an advertised product. “I belong to the blank generation,” he insists, defining both his natural habitat and the source of his anguish.
Vigilantics is an independent artist based in Los Angeles, but his roots in New Mexico clearly influence his music, as evident in "All Lanes." Part psychedelic battle hymn and part hip hop rain dance, the track’s heavy beats match the intensity of lyrics, driving both song and message. This music may not conform nicely to a musical genre, but Rafael Vigilantics has created his own style of tribal/hip-hop/Americana that he wears like a second skin.
Vigilantics, ultimately, is a wordsmith and visionary. His dark warnings, like, "Don’t let your screen be the brightest thing about you” seem to echo especially loud in an electronic world. In"All Lanes," he insists that there is something worth fighting for, the loss of our attention span, the spark that makes our real lives better than our digital one. He makes us want to believe.
