Today, Raygun Carver the video for his single “Jesus, He’s Right.” Equipped with sound that fits perfectly on an Quentin Tarantino movie, Soiseth and company have created a single that’s bold and mesmerizing.
“The song is about losing yourself in a relationship-staying put despite feeling suffocated,” says Soiseth. “Ziad Ahmed, the director, had his own unique take on what the video should be. He responded more to the ‘feel’ of the song rather than filming a word for word visual interpretation.”
