Trav Torch is an RnB crooner who certainly knows how to make things steamy! His latest single, ‘Drake Sh!t’, follows on from his previous releases, ‘Love You Down’, ‘Red Bull and Hennessy’, ‘Quarter Tank Of Gas’, and ‘Bachelor Life’, some of which we have covered here on EP.
From Newark, New Jersey, Trav Torch started out as a rapper when he was 13, making the switch to RnB when he was in his mid-20s. He takes his inspiration from the greats of that musical style, while writing and arranging his own tracks, often also recording and mixing it himself too. He released his debut album, ‘Bachelor Life’, in January this year, with his latest single, ‘Drake Sh!t’ coming from that record.
The music video visits a familiar theme for Trav’s songs, that of him wearing his heart on his sleeve, and missing his girl. He’s got a hole in his heart that can’t be healed by alcohol, and isn’t helped at all by the naysayers surrounding him. Directed by Kim Cas, we see Trav in two locations during the video; first, on the waterfront, and second in an empty warehouse. Whether he’s looking straight to the camera, or gazing wistfully at something in the distance, it’s certain that life isn’t the same for him without his love.
Speaking of the clip, Trav Torch says,
“The song is based on a true story and is something almost everyone can relate to… feeling powerless to get over someone who isn’t right for you. I had to channel those feelings in the video to make sure the final product was authentic and believable.”
