While we might not have all gone to an Arts High School in New York City, sombr’s story is one we can all find relatable. When COVID hit the US, Shane, publicly known as sombr, took the opportunity to better his craft and create music. All from his bedroom! Funded by his summer job scooping ice cream, sombr created a makeshift studio in his room.

He explained that creating music in a time of isolation brought almost a physical escape from the world. Just a kid doing what he loves.

The ‘weak’ Music Video

The artist’s newest single, ‘weak,’ was released earlier this year via Warner Records and was highly anticipated by fans on social media. It was clear when the song was released that it was going to be an instant hit!

A corresponding music video, shot by Jessica Calleiro and edited by sombr himself, premiered on YouTube on February 15. The video feels like a home video in the best way possible. It’s a snapshot of his mind and follows the song incredibly well.
