Brandon Coleman’s “Giant Feelings” is a fun funk fest featuring Patrice Quinn and Techdizzle. Coleman is a current member of Kamasi Washington’s band but he has worked with numerous industry names through the years including Babyface, Shuggie Otis, Ciara and Childish Gambino. The songwriter, keyboardist and producer is releasing his first solo album in September on the Brainfeeder label. Resistance is a culmination of all the music he has enjoyed through the years. According to Coleman,
“I’ve been in the studio a lot in recent years, writing with this or that artist and I always felt constrained… like I had to compromise and submit to a ‘pop’ sensibility,” he explains. “This time I just wanted to create something that was really free… something original… to incorporate all the styles that I represent, because often when I’ve tried to do that in the past it’s been met with resistance.”
Coleman’s first-time meeting Flying Lotus at a rehearsal for the Suite For Ma Dukes set the stage for him to end up on his label. Their similar vision regarding the transcending of genres made an ideal partnership. The visual for “Giant Feelings” seems more like a jam session among friends than a typical music video and that is the kind of camaraderie to be expected on Resistance when it is released September 14th.
