Released earlier this year off his album PMD, ‘NASCAR’ is an emotionally-rich track that reveals Bassy’s more vulnerable side of songwriting, showcasing his expansive talents. In the music video directed by Bobby Hanaford, ‘NASCAR’ opens with an emotional monologue from A24 Florida Project’s Bria Vinaite and follows the heart-rending love story between Bria and Bassy. With lyrics pointing to a “classic American love story”, the couple is seen going through the highs and lows of their relationship which ends in heartbreak.
When speaking on his inspiration behind the video, Bassy said: “The NASCAR video was about using the idea of running away – the car is just a symbol for that escape. Bria starred in my favorite film of the last few years so it was an honor to have her be a part of it!”
