Canadian artist BAINS. has shared a fresh new video for his track “Rough Night.” Appearing on his new album Punch Drunk, “Rough Night”’s dusky, immersive production creates a solid foundation for the artist’s smooth vocal performance. While his melodies are laid-back and catchy, beneath the surface his lyrics are dark and personal, as he reflects on the consequences of partying, drug use, and escapism. “Rough Night” makes for a relatable listen for many listeners overall, pairing thought-provoking themes with infectious instrumentation to make this an offering that is simply easy to re-visit.
The accompanying visual utilizes settings in the interiors of bars and night life venues to capture the song’s themes, and in each venue, BAINS. is alone, which enhances the themes of isolation and depression that can be brought about as a result of over-doing it with partying. It’s an effective way to convey the song’s message, and is bolstered by the performance from BAINS. himself, which is confident and engaging throughout.
The latest from Vancouver’s BAINS., “Rough Night” appears on his new album Punch Drunk, a memorable, often personal set of songs that flirt with hip-hop, R&B, pop, and more. Be sure to give it a listen if you enjoyed “Rough Night.”
