The evolution of Justin Clancy has been a site to behold over these last few years. Ever since the release of “TV Dinner” back in 2017, the Peabody-born artist has grown more and more confident in his sound and it shows with each release.
His latest song, “Noose”, is his most honest and vulnerable record to date. It could be loosely classified as a pop/hip-hop song, and the hook is more than catchy enough to get stuck in your head for an extended period of time, but there is nothing conventionally “pop” about this track. The subject matter is dark but very real, touching on the topics like depression, self-harm, and drug addiction.
The track was produced by the legendary Grammy-nominated Nox Beatz, whose resumé includes Joyner Lucas, Token, and Chris Webby. He and Justin have become a match made in music heaven and there’s no limit to the magic they can create when they get in the studio.
The video treatment was done entirely by Justin himself, and was brought to life by one of the best videographers in the game in Dom Bruno aka Tanj. Check it out:
This track is the first single off Clancy’s upcoming album. He’ll be revealing more from this project in the next few weeks so be sure to follow him on Instagram @justin_clancy to stay tuned. And look out for our podcast with him dropping next week!
