Payson Lewis is ending 2018 with a bang. Following the release of debut EP Take Me Apart, the LA-based indie-pop solo artist dropped the music video for single “Better Run” today. It’s not one to miss.
Directed by James Bianchi, the video for “Better Run” is a gripping mix of several starkly different situations. Lewis is seen engaging in what we can only assume is a typical LA afternoon: driving down a deserted highway, strutting through a concrete embankment with baseball bat in hand, and, of course, caught in a struggle with two glittery dominatrixes.
The video features spectacular cinematography (including sweeping shots of California desert-scape) and dynamic storytelling. While we may not be sure exactly why Lewis has found himself subdued in a dark, neon-lit room with leather-clad BDSM enthusiasts, the audience is undeniably drawn to his expressive and impassioned performance.
