David Poe – Post [Video]
Los Angeles-based artist David Poe delights with the ultra-catchy “Post,” his latest single release to announce the upcoming album Everyone’s Got A Camera set due September 23, 2022. Poe proves that a good song doesn’t need to be drowned in auto-tune and gimmicks, but puts the focus on songwriting that is relevant and irresistibly gorgeous. The beautiful beginning of “Post” sets the vibrant and melodic mood; this is music that gets me from the start and only tightens its allure as it unfolds. The subject matter might also resonate with anybody who’s going through a break-up, with social media’s toxic omnipresence.
Poe has toured the world with Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Tori Amos, The Jayhawks, and Glenn Tilbrook of Squeeze. He is a composer fellow of the Sundance Institute and has his work featured in numerous film, TV, dance, and theater projects.
The accompanying music video is really where “Post” sets itself apart from other music clips. Just let the many cultural nods and references sink in. Don’t they make “Post” all the more mesmerizing? This is done superbly! Special kudos to the director Phillip Hodges, the cinematographer Al Sgro, and of course the artist himself who came up with “Post” in the first place: David Poe.
