When's the last time you experienced a good quality R&B trio? If you're trying to figure it out, then it has been too long. Alas, Half Mile Home, Ohio's popular music group, is here to bring their authentic flair with a new music video release.
Consisting of members Dave Felder, Todd Burton, and Darryl Brownlee, Half Mile Home is an R&B-inspired music group that focuses on spreading their faith through art. Drawing on personal life experiences and challenges, Half Mile Home can connect with their listeners on a level of depth that they hope ultimately works to inspire their audience in any way possible.
Half Mile Home are no strangers to the Gospel Billboard charts, and with their hope of continuing this trend, they have released yet another music video accompanying one of their faith-based songs. The latest debut, "Closet," hosts many pivotal understandings of faith that the group hold close to themselves by focusing on the strength they extract from their sense of faith. Nevertheless, the production is pretty typical of your contemporary R&B scene, which adds a really nice juxtaposition between content and production itself.
The music video for "Closet" begins with a captivating storyline that we personally found ourselves hooked on from the start. Visuals in this video tend to go back and forth between close-ups of the group and the scene of the storyline the group is trying to convey. The video makes use of haptics that were effortlessly embedded into the varying shots, making each beat feel more vigorous. The vibes are overall quite catchy with this particular track of theirs. We feel like cruising with the volume on high, mindlessly taking in everything that passes us by. Here is where the group did an exceptional job at meshing together their faith and more modern styles of the R&B scene today.
The group further goes on to prove that "Closet" was a platform to conceptualize their own faith amidst personal experiences and struggles. You can feel the passion emulating from their voices and the video itself, which is why it's safe to say that "Closet" is one experience R&B listeners should most definitely check out.
Half Mile Home did not fail to inspire with their release of "Closet." Check out the single and its accompanying music video today, available on all digital streaming platforms.
