Brooklyn singer/songwriter Alex Mali has drop a video for “Livin,” a lo-fi visual shot at Brooklyn’s Coney Island amusement park, boardwalk and beach. The song was inspired by a disagreement with her mother over her lifestyle choices that took place while Mali was in the studio recording. In frustration, Mali freestyled the track that became “Livin.”
About the track, Mali wrote, “I didn’t write this track to diss my mom. I made it because it’s what I felt. Not only about my mom, but about everything and everyone. And for everyone out there to hear it and live their life, because people will judge you anyway.”
Expanding on the visual, Mali told VFiles, “It’s shot on a camcorder, and it’s very low production. I chopped it up myself. With that particular video, I just want people to be able to feel intimate with my creations and know that they can relate to me. I don’t want anyone to feel like I think I’m above them. It’s about allowing people to relate to me, but also the regular emotions we all go through daily.”
