Gone far too soon, Ronald Chase Amick made an enormous impact during his short time on Earth through his loving personality and the music he recorded as 6 Dogs. Today, 6 Dogs’ team shares “Beach House,” the lead single from the tragically departed artist’s upcoming album RONALD. Animated by a simple urge to see the ocean and breathe its salty air, “Beach House” was recorded while Chase was cooped up in his house during the pandemic–anathema to someone who got so much energy from spending time in nature. Wielding an understated flow over rubbery bass, thumping 808s, and hypnotic synth arpeggios, Chase and guest rapper RIZ LA VIE, a rising indie artist and a close friend of Chase’s, express their sincere desire to gather with their friends in a big house beside the sea. “Beach House” was Chase’s favorite song from the project.
Directed by Cody LaPlant, the music video for “Beach House” grants Chase’s wish, depositing the late artist and RIZ in a quaint beachside abode near the Atlantic. Using a pastel color palette to communicate Chase’s idyllic fantasy, the video has a celebratory and joyous vibe, the two friends enjoying each other’s company as they go on the hunt for mythical creatures. Though their beachside retreat is far from civilization, Chase and RIZ are not alone–they’re stalked by a mysterious figure wearing a suit and a ski mask.
