Track Of The Day 18/12 – Dent May


The United States is a huge, enormous place, full of cultural variations, and dramatic differences. It's somewhere to get lost in, and – if the mood suits – never be found again.

Dent May grew up in Mississippi, a southern state with deep roots in American farmland.

As his interest in music grew, however, so too did his wanderlust, with Dent later moving to Los Angeles to pursue his career.

The difference was enormous. Immersing himself in the faded glamour of Hollywood, the experience fuels new single '90210', an ode to the City of Angels.

Shades of Brian Wilson ring through, delivered in a psych-pop manner, with Dent's instantly recognisable delivery to the fore.

We're able to share the full visuals for the first time, and they're laced with the inspirational sun of Los Angeles.

Dent tells Clash: "'90210' is about moving to Los Angeles from Mississippi and feeling out of place at a fancy party. The video was directed by my friend Carson Culver with cinematography by Sean Price Williams, who shot my favourite movie in recent memory Good Time."

"It stars Los Angeles icon Tennessee Luke, who many will recognize from Tim & Eric and who I recently witnessed deliver a stirring rendition of I Believe I Can Fly at a local comedy show."
