Welles (aka Jesse Wells) has been making flames across playlists and charts with his raw, West-tinged sound that captures the free spirit of rock in the past few months. His latest music video “Rock N Roll” takes the free-spirited element of the genre further into the animated world. Created by visual artist Diego Huacuja from Basa Estudio near Mexico City, the video features an animated version of Welles enjoying the wild and free spirit of rock:

In regards to the video’s concept, Diego explained “All of the elements and characters represent the lyrics at that moment of the song as well as how I think Jesse would imagine and draw those lyrics. Like the “square” parents. We all know parents are (sometimes) square. The fictional character of Jesse just wants to be free, hang out everywhere, and enjoy the moment.”

The track is from Welles’ debut album Red Trees and White Trashes, which was released back in June of this year. Welles has a long North America tour coming up, so go say hi:
