Swedish/Barbadian artist Naomi Pilgrim delivers the video for her powerful track “Sink Like a Stone”, taken from her recent Sink Like a Stone EP, which includes the single “I Wonder”. Inspired by Eric Garner’s tragic death in 2014, “Sink Like A Stone” features vivid lyrics from Pilgrim who calls attention to unjust killings. Although the song is highly empathetic, Pilgrim went in a different direction when it came to her video.
In a press release, Pilgrim dives deeper into the video’s concept: “We live in a society where too many people praise prejudices before peace and that shit is not only terrible for serenity, it kills too. My goal with this video was to make something special without making it literal and I chose to work with director Alexis ”Alexis Weak” Almström because his vision was on point.”
