With snow still on the ground and temperatures refusing to stay above the 40-degree mark, it’s spring in name only for a frostbitten and increasingly grumpy Milwaukee. At the stately A.V. Club Milwaukee headquarters, we’re so desperate for a change of season that we’ve begun looking for signs of spring in the most unlikely of places: local music videos. Take the newly released clip for Klassik’s “ForeverWhatever,” for instance. Is there anything more refreshing than watching the local hip-hop wunderkind get his groove on at the Milwaukee Art Museum while kicking only a jean jacket and a pair of high-tops? We think not.
“Foreverwhatever” is the second single from Klassik’s critically acclaimed 2012 LP In The Making (the disc made our top 15 Milwaukee albums of 2012 list), and it’s just as life-affirming as its video: warm, dense, and effortlessly infectious. Plus, the Xavier-Ruffin-directed video features Klassik destroying a piano with a sledgehammer, which is clearly a metaphor for the impending death of winter.
