UNDER THE RADAR: Ex Reyes – “Bad Timing”

UNDER THE RADAR: Ex Reyes – “Bad Timing”.

The video for “Bad Timing,” the debut single from Ex Reyes, a psych-soul project by Brooklyn-based musician Mikey Freedom Hart, was shot in New Orleans right in the midst of Mardi Gras earlier this year. Beads and beer were involved — although “Bad Timing” goes deeper than the surface revelries.

Born in Louisiana, Hart views New Orleans as being a city particularly plagued by bad timing. As he put it in a note to The FADER, “When somebody dies, we have a party. When we have a party, somebody dies.” Accordingly, in the video, the parade leads to an empty field where there is more fêting — but of the destructive sort.
