Just like the album, the “Light A Match” music video is an homage to Demrick’s come up, featuring throwback footage of Demrick through the years, and a bright look into the open future for the burgeoning artist. It’s a beautifully shot video whose warm, cinematic feel lets fans experience Los Angeles through Demrick’s eyes. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Chatting about the video, Demrick wanted, “everyone to hear about what I been up to over the past few years since ‘Collect Call.’ It’s a really reflective record and I wanted the video to give off that vibe. I included a bunch of BTS footage that doesn’t get shared on social media so people can see more of my story. I also wanted it to capture the beauty of downtown LA and be bright and colorful because I’m in a really good place right now in my life. I feel focused and ready to take it up to a whole new level.”
