After debuting his Hudson Mohawke co-produced single “REASONS” last December, Brooklyn-based singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Cautious Clay released his debut Table of Context EP to rave reviews last month. Now the artist has returned with a day-in-the-life visual for the R&B-centric cut.

The track, which features co-writing from Mohawke as well as indie-rock vocalist Tobias Jesso Jr. features a range of dreamy soundscapes that employ a variety of syncopated drums and melodies. The visual stays true to the track by honing in on fish-eyed b-roll that sees Clay singing into his laptop, filled with b-roll of owls and Eggo waffles.

In a press release, Clay notes that “the video is set up kind of like a dream sequence that portrays a surreal picture of my day-to-day life” further noting that the “centrifuge” is his desk, the place where he’s lugubriously chugged away at making music for the past eight years. The video inevitably taps on the artist’s past interests as well, incorporating his high school love for pole vaulting and swimming.

You can watch the visual for “REASONS” above.

In case you missed it, James Blake recently shared a new minimalistic cut “Mulholland.”
