Today, the Montreal-via-Lac-St-Jean artist Dave Chose presents a new video for 0.5%. The track is off his self-titled debut album (a tremendous start, according to Olivier Boisvert-Magnen, Radio-Canada) released on April 27th via Bonsound. The record has already racked up numerous flattering reviews.
Taking a page out of the grunge music of his youth, 0.5%’s lyrics are a self-reflection on the monotony and ennui Dave felt throughout a long period of sobriety. J’carbure au tonic / Flat comme un vieux rubber / Pis me semble que ça va / Mais fuck c’est / Pas débile [I’m running on tonic water / As flat as old rubber / And everything seems fine / But fuck it’s not awesome], he sings on the track. In the video directed by Jean-Martin Gagnon, we find Dave surrounded by his loved ones in a diner where he celebrates his birthday, a scene reminiscent of his childhood, a period of his life that he’s particularly fond of.
