Edmonton’s own Ben Stevenson released his album, Cara Cara via Culvert Music last month. “Honeycola” is one of the songs from the release, give it a listen above, and if you like what you hear, be sure to check out the full album.
When we asked Ben about the video, he commented,
“The video for Honeycola is about the discovery and embrace of inner femininity. A process which has taken me a lifetime but especially blossomed in the last few months. While feared and repressed for much of my life, it has found its way with me, pushing itself up like a blade of grass. Shooting in LA we were able to capture the natural landscape, the flowers and the trees as symbols of this. The juxtaposition of the standard “guy in the video lip-synching the song” with the unleashed beauty of the female alter-ego is a celebration of the inner woman, and the liberation she represents.”
