Teezo Touchdown Leaves His Mark on Milan Fashion Week With "I'm Just a Fan"
No artists make the continued reliance on genres feel as archaic as Teezo Touchdown. The Texas-based multi-instrumentalist, artist, and overall creative force is making the music he wants to make - qualifiers like rap, emo-rap, hip-hop, alternative, and power-pop are likely not even a passing afterthought. And his latest single, "I'm Just a Fan," proves that his peerless vision is not confined to the realm of music.
"I'm Just a Fan" and its accompanying video is a creative multidisciplinary piece for Matthew Williams' #MONCLER1017ALYX9SM collection, which was unveiled during Milan Fashion Week. The single features Teezo musing on the nature of relationships against a spare sonic backdrop, drawing comparisons between the intimacy of an oscillating fan and an underappreciated lover. "What's the point of being on all day when no one appreciates the noise you make? / What's the point of being on all day when no one can tolerate the music you make?," drones Teezo in a heartfelt moment that borders on sonic poetry.
The accompanying video, which was co-directed by Austyn Sux and Teezo himself, sees the genreless creative embodying the physical manifestation of his subject matter, left to oscillate endlessly as his trademark nails fall to the floor below. Beyond dominating both the music and now fashion game - the enviable creative was also the highlight performer at Madonna's Madame X premiere at New York Fashion week - Teezo is set to embark on Tyler, the Creator's 'Call Me If You Get Lost' tour, kicking off in 2022.
