There are many adjectives one might use to describe Missouri City-bred singer LOE. Laid-back. Introspective. Focused. Talented, for sure, if her recent song “Time With You” is any (further) indication. After peeping the new music video for LOE’s “Dark Hour” track, however, it may be time to add “unfuckwitable” to that list of descriptors.

“Dark Hour” was first released on LOE’s soundcloud a year ago, back when the budding singer was pushing her #HELLOE EP as an alternative to Houston’s mostly rap-dominated climate. Pensive and potent in its nearly three minute run-length, with LOE’s voice melting in between the snyths and her harmonizing haunting, “Dark Hour” stuck with listeners.

The accompanying video for “Dark Hour” keeps that feeling of haunting and then some. Premiered by COMPLEX Magazine and directed by noted Houston-based director Ozieren (with an assist from Charles “Fanatical Mind” Powers), the “Dark Hour” visuals depict LOE as a spectator who becomes an agent upon witnessing an incident of domestic violence. Initially observing as a man disrespects his woman, LOE takes the woman to safety. Or so she thinks. The Houston homages are prevalent, right down to the purple hues and styrofoam cups Ozieren sneaks in as he brings LOE’s tale to life; but it’s “Dark Hour’s” ending that’ll hook viewers most of all.
