Independent rapper Old Man Saxon imbues his sharp work with both heartbreak and humor, and never more so that in his new video for “Sunday Saxon.” The Colorado-bred artist released his EP “The Perils” last year, the title track tackling the reality of his life in L.A. — which included his living in the back of Ford Explorer. Old Man Saxon’s new video for “Sunday Saxon,” directed by Anthony Yano Hays, is deadpan funny and deadly serious; it’s a fable that gets inside the head of a young boy whose father is absent and whose mother is wrapped up in her own needs. On a walk through the woods, the boy befriends a tortoise (Saxon Cole Kincy himself) who assures him everything is gonna be cool. The video has been pre-selected for the Newport Beach Film Festival and the NYC Independent Film Festival. With any luck, it’ll make turtle rap a thing.
