Loyle Carner Offers An Ode To Mothers In ‘Sun Of Jean’


South London’s Loyle Carner should have been on your radar for a long long time now. Having released debut studio album Yesterday’s Gone in January (which was subsequently nominated for a Mercury Prize), Loyle’s soulful brand of UK Hip Hop has garnered attention in all the right places. This week (on the same day of the Mercury announcements, which he lost out on to Sampha), Loyle dropped a fresh video for track ‘Sun Of Jean’. On an already emotionally charged album, this was one of the prime tearjerkers. In the collaborative video with director Joao Retorta (with whom he has worked before), the pair offer an analog style ode to mothers all over the world. Depicting heartwarming moments between mothers and their boys, the visuals end with a spoken word piece from Loyle’s mother herself. It’s an accurate and moving representation of the track, with the mother/son bond shining through.
