Free Nationals may be best known as the band behind Anderson .Paak, but the group is making strides to stand out on its own. Back in October, they teased their forthcoming self-titled debut with the lead single, Beauty & Essex, which featured Daniel Caesar and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Today, the collective is back with the Scott Lazer-directed visuals for the track.
Caesar takes a central role in the video, placed in front of solid coloured backgrounds and flanked by stolid models. Free Nationals themselves play from underneath wind-taught tarps, while their friend .Paak shows up for a cameo.
