Marksman Lloyd drops ‘Gene Simmons’ music video
Rising Perth rapper Marksman Lloyd just released his highly anticipated music video to infectious single Gene Simmons.
Directed by Angelo Dicarlo at one of his favourite local coffee spots, 16 Ounces, the clip is a date turned dance party starring model and activist Angeline Faith.
“Gene Simmons was the first ‘happy love song’ I’ve probably ever written, so I wanted to make a clip that had that playful, nonchalant nature,” says Lloyd.
“I’m awkward as hell in real life so why not just show that in the clip and have some fun with it.”
Released from last years EP Portals, the single highlights his unique flow, melodic progression and refreshing charisma.
Marksman Lloyd will be headlining his first hometown show for 2018 at Jack Rabbit Slims on September 14 and will be supporting good friend 360 later in the month.
“I’m so passionate about having an insane live show,” he says.
“That’s how music was received for thousands of years so I feel like if you can’t engage a crowd live, you severely lack as an artist.”
Previously performing with the likes of Drapht, Thundamentals and Macklemore, the hometown show will see him premiere new music with his own bunch of special guests.
