Brooklyn-based artist Cautious Clay returns following the release of his “REASONS” video, this time dropping visuals for his new single “Sidewinder.” Directed by Haoyan of America, the surreal music video showcase Clay mentally drifting until he gets trapped within a dream.

During the music video, the artist uses a lighter and snake visuals to symbolize the duality of what he’s chasing and avoiding through life. In a press release to Billboard, who premiered the video, Clay states:

“I wanted the visual to be simple and it to almost feel like a dream sequence of when you are distracted thinking about something. The snake and lighter represent that distraction or ‘back-and-forth’ kind of attitude towards a lot of things in life; sometimes the things we run away from end up being what we want most and visa versa.”

Check out the visuals above, and in case you missed it, check out the new video for Gucci Mane and Meek Mill’s “Backwards.”
