In our sadly fractious times, when we’re seeing far too many images of white supremacists taking to the streets of the U.S. in an effort to “take their country back,” more than ever we need to see and hear culture that better reflects the true diversity of our nation. That’s just one reason I chose to present this video for the song “Vigilantes” from hip-hop duo TRØN & DVD. The other reason is simple: this song slaps.
This family affair—the group is made up of brothers Norvin and Darian Van Dunk—have been bubbling under the hip-hop scene in their native New York for the past few years, releasing a bevy of mixtapes and solo efforts along the way. But they are about to receive a big boost with the help of Kiam Records and its owner Jennifer O’Connor. She is not only releasing the duo’s full-length Afraid of the Dark on October 20th through her label, but she helped co-produce the record, and guests on a track.
Check out the video for their powerful new single “Vigilantes” below. And if you like what you heard, you can catch TRØN & DVD this Friday, August 18th, at Our Wicked Lady in Brooklyn, as part of the Summerslam Weekend Kick-off Party, or catch them at their album release show at the Mercury Lounge on October 23rd.
