WATCH | Simple Man Releases Heart Grabbing Visuals For "Hydroplane"

Simple Man is a genre confused band from Highland Park, New Jersey.

We dig it. 

The band is made up of singer/rapper Yaakov Kafka. Band guitarists Tamir Tusia, Eli Weiss and bassist Clayton McIntyre.

They are as real as music gets. Going past all the gimmicks and stripping it down to pure musicality is something they are talented at delivering it through a heart-gripping debut EP (link below).

What separates Simple Man from anything out there right now, is how they easily bring together their unique cultural and spiritual backgrounds to life through their seamless blend of mulitple genres. It isn't often that you get a really good band that can blend hip-hop, jazz, rock, soul, and reggae to create something that feels so new, and so real. 

Their latest release is a music video for "Hydroplane" - The visuals provide an honest and emotional window into Simple Man's world. The introspective lyrics provide a conscious background to the creative cinematic concept visualized by Director Jon Seale of Mason Jar Music.

Watch the video above. 

Simple Man's debut EP was produced by Jeremy McDonald (Beyonce's "Pray You Catch Me", Kevin Garrett "Refuse") for the Brooklyn-based studio, Mason Jar Music.
