Briston Maroney, the rising indie-rock artist based in Nashville has just released the music video for ‘Why,’ the emotional, guitar-led track from his debut album Sunflower, which was released via Canvasback Music. The video arrives just 2 weeks after the release of the album and was featured on the visual film created by Briston alongside long-time creative collaborator Joey Brodnax. You can watch the visual HERE.
Considering it is only Briston’s debut album, Sunflower has been received extremely well, with insane critical acclaim from press, radio, and, of course, fans from all over the world – including us here at THP. The indie-rock album is made up of 10 powerful tracks full of instrumental solos and breathtaking vocals, which has been met with nothing but success since its release on April 9th. The album charted at #7 on Spotify’s Top 10 US Album Debuts, and has amassed 4 million global streams – well deserved! You can buy/stream Sunflower HERE.
The new video for ‘Why’ is the sixth music video to be released from the debut album, with previous singles such as ‘Freeway‘ and ‘It’s Still Cool If You Don’t‘ having a combined total of 800 thousand views on YouTube since being put out. ‘Why’ is one of the most emotionally raw tracks from the album, with vulnerable vocals and heartfelt lyrics exploring the feeling of self-doubt and self-critique. This emotion really can be seen within the new music video, which stars Briston as he drives down an empty road – perhaps the perfect place for self-reflection? The cinematography of the video is beautiful, and the perfect production engages the fans, but not taking too much attention away from the stunning isolated vocals that Briston Maroney showcases. The music video has gained over 5 thousand views in less than 24 hours, and we really can understand why – it’s amazing.
2021 really is shaping up to be a successful year for Briston Maroney, after the release of his debut album, numerous singles climbing the charts, and his appearances on tour with Mt. Joy and his set at Bonnaroo Music Festival in September, he’s guaranteed to bring in many more fans.
