Sweater Beats, the Philippines-born, Maryland-bred producer and musician, has teamed up with rising singer-songwriter and director Hayley Kiyoko to release ‘Glory Days,’ the final track off Sweater Beats’ For The Cold EP. The karaoke themed official music video for “Glory Days,” out now, features a bevy of prominent Asian-American influencers.
The producer’s inspiration for this video was to bring attention to an entirely Asian cast of tastemakers and artists including Far East Movement, The Kinjaz, Ryan Feng, Starro, Dumfoundead, Lydia Paek, Ellen Kim, and Kimi Singer who stars as ‘Karaoke Girl’ in the video.
“‘Glory Days’ is my first music video ever, and the most important thing I wanted to push in the video was the presence of Asian artists, dancers, musicians and tastemakers,” said Sweater Beats of the clip. “There aren’t a lot of videos like this, with an all-Asian cast, outside the K-pop and J-pop world. As an Asian artist, I feel like I have a responsibility to represent the community however I can.”
