Artist Darryl Rahn is one that has been on our radar the past couple of weeks. With his glorious new video in tow, “Talk” which premiered via Aesthetic Magazine, the buzzworthy artist is surely making his name in the world. The thrilling new piece entices from beginning to end, with a plot twist in every direction. We had the chance to catch up with the Brooklyn resident, to dive a bit deeper into his newest endeavor.
Tell us the story of this song, why did you choose to visualize this song specifically?


This song is about a feeling I get pretty often here in New York. Every day you have to interact with and answer to so many people, and I’ve found myself craving alone time more and more. I decided to make a video for it just because I thought the song was catchy enough, and would lend itself to a multitude of concepts.

What was the inspiration behind this video(visuals, storyline, etc.)?


My old friend Jordan Tetewsky (director) and I came up with the plot pretty quickly after turning the lyric on its head. We thought it’d be funny to have the main character adamantly following people while singing “I don’t wanna talk” over and over. We also both love classic horror films (Friday the 13th, Halloween), so it was a no-brainer to try and make this our own miniature version of those. 


What was the process of making this video?

 

It was filmed in 3 full days. We basically exhausted every resource we had here in Brooklyn to source gear, production assistance, and locations, and just tackled it as fast as we could. Unfortunately we had to wrap early the first night because it was so cold, but for the most part it went about as smoothly as it could have.
