A beautiful video for Black Pumas track “Colors” by New York City-based director Kristian Mercado (previously featured here):

“I really wanted to capture how powerful the sounds and vocals of Black Pumas are. We explore the idea of the Bronx as a living garden, always growing always moving forward, and finding a cinematic landscape in places people often ignore.”
