Music Video Monday: Clay Otis and the Dream Shieks

Posted By on Mon, May 11, 2015 at 12:45 PM

Memphis musical chameleon Clay Otis gets serious on this week's Music Video Monday. 


Ever record Otis releases is an exploration of a different corner of pop, R&B, and rock history. He can croon love songs and spit out soul shouts with equal aplomb. In this video for "Moral Untold" from last year's album Citizen Clay, which he directed under his given name Clay Hardee, he combines compelling archival footage of armed conflict with footage of the band in the studio and some trippy transparencies. The best part is the unreal footage Otis uncovered of a young girl standing up to, the in the words of the song, "Big, big men with big, big guns".   The video was shot by Chris Owen and edited by frequent Otis collaborator Jake Vest.
