I recently came across Sage Elsesser on Instagram, not through music but through skateboarding. I started following his account, and moved on. But something was bothering me. His name sounded so familiar.
I went back to his Instagram in hopes of finding some familiarity to his name which was when I discovered he also produces music under the name of Navy Blue.
Not even 2 seconds into his album Song of Sage: Post Panic! it hit me. Sage was included in the outro of Frank Ocean’s Blonde. Or more specifically, it was a snippet of his interview in “Hopes and Dreams” from the Boy’s Don’t Cry magazine.
Since putting on the album, I basically haven’t turned it off.
And since we are getting snow in New York, it only seems appropriate to also share his music video for Moment Hung.
Forever a classic.
