The Lounge-Chair Tropical Explorer Invites NOWNESS to Share his Summer Daze
The poolside antics of straw-hat sporting New York musician Sean Bones distil a hazy suburban safari feel in John Fitzgerald and Meshakai Wolf’s video for his new track “Hit Me Up.” Showing a late summer’s tomfoolery through the glaze of afternoon drinks, jokes and conversations, the watery video revels in the sunshine soaked 60s sounds and languid tunes that permeate Bones’ second album, Buzzards Boy, released in May. “It’s more of my nighttime dream,” says Bones of the video. “It’s what happens if you phone me after 2pm, it gets a little bit… foggy.” Beyond music, Bones has previously run limited edition swimwear line S/S Friends out of Cobble Hill, Brooklyn with his now wife—a series of bolo ties are now in the works—and starred alongside singer-songwriter Norah Jones, legendary reggae troupe The Congos and Jamaica’s lush jungle landscape in Ben Chace and Sam Fleischner’s slacker-core odyssey flick Wah Do Dem, which won Best Feature at the Los Angeles Film Festival. “I’ve become a kind of armchair travel writer via song,” jokes the bard. “It’s probably why I like wearing funny hats and khaki outfits from time to time.” Here the Massachusetts-native shares his top dog day tipple and sub-tropical destination.
