“PRETTY FACE” | SAINT KRIS
Posted by Oak and Oar on
If you have read the blog in the last few weeks you may remember some photos from May Long. This is what we were up to…
‘Pretty Face’ is the single off of Saint’s up coming EP, set to come out early fall. I’ve been fortunate enough to preview a few tracks and bar none this will be his best musical project yet, and if you know me, I am quite fond of his previous projects Extra Ordinary and B.Y.O.B.
For the single, Saint teamed up with local producer Jason Russell (Rup Monsta). I was exchanging texts with Saint last night and asked him how this song came to fruition. This was his insight:
“I met with Rup at his studio. We began rifling through his production and stumbled across the beat (that would later become Pretty Face). He said he had been sitting on it for two years as no one wanted it. He quickly tossed out a melody that he had is his head and that made the instrumental even better knowing he already had a killer hook ready to go. He laid down the hook and the concept was set. It flowed pretty naturally from there”.
When we sat down to discuss the concept for the video we knew we wanted to reflect the track’s up beat and energetic tempo. Seemed natural to pack our bags and head to the lake.
“Best part of the shoot was shooting a video without people feeling like we were shooting a video. People got lost in just having a good time out at the cabin – on what turned out to be a stunning day. We just happened to have good music playing and a couple cameras kicking around”.
Produced: Jason Russell (Rup Monsta)

I encourage you to share this video and support local Canadian hip-hop and pick up the single from iTunes. Thanks to Saint for allowing us to be involved in the process and for repping Oak + Oar from day one.
