22 year-old rapper Dylan Owen‘s There’s More To Life EP, which releases June 8th, is a coming of age story about an individual growing up in a small town, treading through waves of anxiety for the future. In his Mike Holland-directed video for “Everything Gets Old,” which debuted via DJBooth, Dylan reflects on friendships and life’s calling as he transitions from adolescence to adulthood. “We slowly grow apart, ” he explains. “My best friend and I have different lives, I start traveling to the city to perform music, his girlfriend leaves him but keeps in touch with me, etc. We tried to capture the nostalgia of my hometown area and the mystery of the future.” Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
Over a rolling, melancholy beat by Skinny Atlas and Jason Moss, picturesque scenes of Dylan and his friends showcase universal coming-of-age uncertainties that many young adults feel today; what will happen when some of us start to grow apart as we reach adulthood? What does the future hold? “Everything Gets Old” was the first single to be released from his upcoming EP, and it recently surpassed 100K plays on SoundCloud. “I thought of this song while driving down the highway in the middle of the night,” Dylan reveals. “I say ‘I’m infinite’ because time stops in that moment when you can peacefully reflect on things. I pass houses that haven’t taken down their Christmas lights in the middle of the year, spots where me and my friends used to hang, lots of symbols of time moving on.”
