Shot with Super 8mm film (common in the 1960’s and 1970’s), “S.O.S.” is Stephen the Levite’s celebration of his wife. He is releasing the video on Valentine’s Day as a way to further celebrate the love he has for her. “S.O.S.” features Wes Pendleton on the hook and is taken from Stephen’s second studio album, “The Last Missionary”.
In the chorus, Stephen the Levite compares his wife to girls that are mentioned in popular rap songs from the 90’s. Stephen said, “I was trying to say my wife is better than what the world has to offer. The songs referenced in the chorus are exaggerated fantasies and I wanted to contrast that with what a real, godly woman is”.
The style of the video carries the same theme. It was shot in such a way as to communicate the everyday life and memories that we share of loved ones. Nothing fancy or stylized, just the moments that tell our stories. This is their story.
