When we last checked in with Milwaukee hip hop artist Melissa Czarnik in February, Czarnik was just about to embark on a two month-long artist residency in France with designs on creating new album Non Merci. Read the interview, here, and dive into a new video (below) for “Rummy”, the first single to debut from that forthcoming album, Non Merci, which will be released in late September.
Czarnik writes of the video and the album, “Non Merci blurs the lines between imagination and reality. What is real? What is fake? How much control do we as people hold over our own lives, our own cities?” Czarnik addresses this in the video she directed for “Rummy” which was filmed in Milwaukee and Marnay-sur-Seine, France (the location of her residency) by Eric Mire and Darren Cole of Alphabang Productions.
