Dom Corleo’s latest visual, directed by DotCom Nirvan, is quite literally out of this world.
Once again, DotCom Nirvan is raising the bar for visuals in the new wave.
With an insanely elaborate music video jam-packed with 2001: A Space Odyssey references, “IDK” is a 2000-way entendre for the futuristic highlight off Dom Corleo’s latest EP, 2014, featuring Highway (aka Highway2009).
In what was already an unexpected link-up between the two rising stars, Dom and Highway added a third to the mix when they linked with Nirvan for the video. Easily one of the most important platforms for artists breaking out of the underground in recent years, Nirvan is constantly pushing the boundaries — pulling out all the special effects stops and channeling Stanley Kubrick to create one of his biggest, most conceptual visuals yet for “IDK.”
“IDK” also gave us one of the most upbeat looks at Highway — jumping on the party-friendly production from Henney for his first time on the platform. Nirvan has also been teasing some potential future collabs, so it looks like this won’t be the last time the pair link up.
Dom Corleo dropped 2014 in January, and with songs like “IDK,” “Luv Drunk” and “Party Girlz,” he built on the catchy, party track style that helped him turn him into one of the biggest breakout artists of 2022. Following the success of tracks like “Penthouse Shordy” and “Ginseng,” Dom has stood out from the crowd with the help of ear-catching production from 16teen (another young rising star to watch). DotComNirvan also directed a double-header for “Converse / Fly As Hell” in November that further cemented his place as a frontrunner in the new wave.
Overall, “IDK” is a three-way win for three of the most exciting names in the underground — all knocking on the door of the mainstream.
