Leon Else - Black Car

Fresh off signing a deal with Interscope Records, Leon Else is back with a brilliant new single, “Black Car.” The song is about the allure of materialistic things, and how certain purchases can make us see ourselves in an entirely different light.

Now what exactly would the personification of these ideas look like? Thankfully we don’t have to use our imaginations to find out. Directed by Jordan Bahat, the video for “Black Car” stars Leon himself along with actress/model Suki Waterhouse. You may know Ms. Waterhouse for being absurdly gorgeous. Here she’s cast as a diner waitress who’s missed the last bus home. Never fear (or really start to fear) because our hero (antihero?) Leon is here to give her a ride in his, you guessed it, black car.

I don’t want to spoil anything, so let me just say that this is a ride you won’t soon forget! Also, this song rules.



I haven’t seen a car involved in erotic escapades like that since Season 8 of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Anyways, Leon Else is hard at work on his debut LP. One can only hope it’ll provide more songs and videos like this.
