Hav­ing released the audio for the fan-favor­ite, Colt has set the bar high for the video. Trav­el­ing to magic­al Morocco to shoot the video for his track ‘Mile Away’, Colt decided to change the usu­al nar­rat­ive of dia­spora around the globe.

For the self-dir­ec­ted video of ‘Mile Away’, just as the audio, drafts inspir­a­tion from the story of many that left their coun­try to find a bet­ter future in the ‘West­ern-world’. For his video he changes around the story, with a European Caucasi­an fam­ily cross­ing the street of Gibral­tar to find a new life on the Afric­an con­tin­ent. With the video Colt touches upon sev­er­al issues many have encountered when set­tling abroad for a bet­ter future, as lan­guage bar­ri­ers, find­ing shel­ter and lack of oth­er basic neces­sit­ies.

Kelvyn turns the table, by shed­ding a dif­fer­ent light on the story of refugees and cre­ate more under­stand­ing for the situ­ations many had to encounter.

Even though the track is a fan-favor­ite, pro­duced by Blaise Keys and Mounir Maarouf in Par­is, many did not yet under­stand the inspir­a­tion for the track and what it stands for. With this video, dir­ec­ted by Colt him­self, he uses his plat­form to cre­ate aware­ness with­in his TBHG com­munity and bey­ond.
