Ridin This Wave
Music video produced for the band "N0t listed", a project inspired by pop culture, feminine iconology, R&B and 80's + 90's nostalgia. Directed by Canadian-born celebrity photographer Mike Ruiz, Post-Production including editing, compositing, and color grading by Matyas Kelemen.
Kayvon, Leo, and Josh formed N0t Listed together through meeting in the NYC underground queer circuit. While each band member is from a different ethnic background; Kayvon is Iranian American, Josh is Mexican American and Leo is African American, they were all born and raised in the south. Together they wanted to create a project that would embrace who they are and celebrate their queerness.
N0t Listed as a group name derives from the feeling of not fitting into any of life's multiple choices. The guys each fall under a different aspect of the LGBTQIA umbrella; Josh identifies as gay, Leo identifies as bisexual and Kayvon feels closest to pansexual.
The group formed in 2019 and has created over a dozen songs. N0t Listed were able to overcome the limitations of creating in a pandemic and film a music video for what will be their debut single/project release for "Ridin This Wave". The group writes their own music and Josh does all the production in his studio apartment.
The project is inspired by pop culture, feminine iconology, R&B and 80's + 90's nostalgia.
