    “So, I’d always wanted to direct a video, and the thing about “Bloody Samaritan” was different from my other music videos. I’ve always been very extreme as an artist, almost trying to show off.

    With “Bloody Samaritan”, I wanted people to see my personality and style as authentically as I could translate into video form. I wanted people to see my character.

    For the video, I had a tiny budget to work with, which pushed my creativity. I had to call my friends and be like please show up for me guys, just come to the video shoot and vibe with me. Like that’s what it was, just me and my friends were having fun. Very grungy, very low budget, just showing me as the teenager I am.”
