Levek “Black Mold Grow” from Michael Lawrence on Vimeo.

Levek presents their first music video from Look A Little Closer for “Black Mold Grow”. Directed by Michael Lawrence in Buffalo, NY. He shares a little bit about how the project came together –

“David (from Levek) and I spoke for months about the meaning behind the album, ‘Black Mold Grow’ in particular. Similar images kept on coming into both of our heads – a gauzy, transcendental view on a young woman’s struggle with her psyche. Creating the film was an organic process – everything from the original script to the end product was guided by the nature surrounding us. The locations and environments added a large scope to the film – but, more than anything, created a backdrop for a character-driven story to unfold in a spontaneous, genuine way.”
