Joey Dosik’s debut album,InsideVoice, is set for releaseAugust24thviaSecretlyCanadian. Today, he’s thrilled to share theTim Hendrix-directed video for album’s second single,“Don’t Want It To Be Over” (Feat. Coco O.). The song “is too happy to be just be a break up song and too dark lyrically to be just a make up song,” says Dosik. “The music video showcases a couple that expresses their love/hate for each other with cunning immaturity and physical genius. The insanely nimble dancers,JJRaboneandHunterKrikac, run circles around each other just like we sometimes do with our partners — coming up with rhymes and reasons to assert our control and mask our insecurities.JoRoychoreographed with the influence of 60’s Go-Go and Bob Fosse, but I’m most amazed at how she is still able to use a modern flare on top of the classic styles.” Watch the video below.
