Video: Bryce Hase – “PastLife” ft. Asian Doll
The Emerging 17-Year-Old Singer Connects with a Fellow Dallas Native for a Neon-Lit New Video From His Wonderland469 EP
Bursting out of Dallas with a loyal following of fans, 17-year-old Bryce Hase smoothly threads the needle between rap, pop, and R&B. Piecing together the memories of an epic night, Bryce shares “PastLife,” his new video. A headphone-ready jam with immersive, chiming production, the young singer struggles to recover from a night of hard partying–he can’t recall what he did, or who he was with, and he wonders if he made decisions he’ll regret: “I don’t remember last night, sh*t felt like a past life,” he sings in a sighing tenor. Featuring an appearance from fellow Dallas native Asian Doll, who delivers soft witticisms with candy-coated melodies, the song comes together with a chopped-n-screwed breakdown, the distorted voices mirroring the faded feelings of parties past.
Directed by Chris Moreno (OT Genasis, Zoey Dollaz), the “PastLife” video is a psychedelic fever dream, telling the story of two parallel nights in a seedy hotel room. In the first, Bryce takes a mystery pill with a beautiful woman, and in the second, Asian Doll seduces a man with ill intentions. Echoing Bryce’s altered state, the video ends in mystery and tragedy, offering only a blurry idea of reality and chronology. “PastLife” is a highlight track from Wonderland469, Bryce’s debut EP, which dropped last week via Dirty Hit Records, the label behind The 1975 and Wolf Alice.
Packing hook after hook into the EP’s 4 tracks, Bryce Hase welcomes listeners into his warped world on Wonderland469, showing a seedy side of Dallas that most people don’t know about. The EP hosts Bryce’s breakthrough single “Off The Planet,” an upbeat breezy populated by blooping keys and a guest verse from wifisfuneral. With a video that premiered on No Jumper, “Off The Planet” is rapidly approaching 1 million streams across platforms. A bite-sized taste of what he can offer, Wonderland469 is the opening salvo in an eventful year for the young artist. Stay tuned for much more music in the near future.
