Kyle Bent Releases Short Film ‘Complex Simplicity’
Massachusetts-based rap artist Kyle Bent has dropped his first short film, ‘Complex Simplicity‘ via media outlet Earmilk. The feature was directed by Matt Arnold, and serves as a vehicle to reinforce the message behind his upcoming album. “It takes a lot less energy to pull the plug and stop fighting, than it does to build an entire life out of nothing but your own thoughts,” Bent says to his audience.
In the short film, Bent speaks directly to his audience, creating a raw and intimate atmosphere. His music, coupled with his captivating visuals and conscious lyricism, is making waves in the dynamic world of hip-hop. He has already gained the attention of MTV, WSHH, Complex, XXL amongst others. This latest video comes in anticipation of his forthcoming album, Complex Simplicity, due out soon.
He began creating music around the age of nine, after a friend introduced him to the art of freestyling. When he was thirteen he was given an opportunity to record in a real studio courtesy of executive engineer Tarik McFarland. McFarland then became the official engineer for Bent during his entire high school career, as his music career began to take shape.
To date, Bent has released a total of six projects with a seventh on the way. In between each of one of these projects, he’s released multiple music videos that have between 30,000 to 500,000 views respectively. Bent has provided a precedent for his upcoming album, Complex Simplicity, with a powerful piece that observes seemingly smaller nuances in life. His vision for his short film is in tune with the beat of his ascension to success.
