BILLY STAR IS BORN

BY KENZ MEADOWS

BROCKHAMPTON
, an L.A.-based hip-hop group that's been gaining notoriety in the alt scene, came out with a 22-minute movie, Billy Star

The group just did two consecutive sold-out shows at the El Rey that sandwiched a talked-about daytime performance with Tyler, the Creator at Santa Ana's The Observatory. Additionally, their New Years Eve "Prom" included a surprise performance from Billie Eilish. And with a North American tour on the ground, this short film shows they have no intention of slowing down.

The film, about young love, is described as an American tragedy. I'll warn you now; it's going to break your heart, and is at times hard to watch. Both its aesthetic and storytelling prove particularly impressive, given that it was written in two weeks and filmed in just ten days.

BROCKHAMPTON is a group that can address any subject matter. They're not limited in what they can accomplish, be it consistently producing great albums, putting on aptly hyped live shows or a making a movie. The full-length rendition of Billy Star is said to be headed to theaters soon, and I don't doubt they'll make it happen.    
 
Check it out below, and see all the other great visuals they've made here. Do your best to see them on their Love Your Parents Tour, much of which is sold out.
