"Silly Affairs" is Joey Ferber's debut single and considering his role as a guitarist for the St. Louis based jazz hip-hop collective, LOOPRAT, it makes sense that it is a collaborative effort. Ferber, a burgeoning singer-songwriter in his own right teamed up with fellow LOOPRAT NatKingFlo for this whimsical, guitar-laden bop, that's stylings resemble something like R&B with a dash of rap. While the song's playful aesthetic hints at love and heartbreak, its core gets at the deep, sometimes complicated emotions behind romance. The song recognizes the importance of choosing time wisely, spending it with people who have your best interest in mind and vice versa. But as the video details, these decisions aren't always so clear cut. Ego gets involved, and next thing you know, lessons get learned the hard way.
For the visuals, Ferber teamed up with fellow St. Louisan, Freddy D'angelo to create what ended up feeling more like a short film than a music video. As far as follow ups, expect more collaborative efforts and solo content to support his debut drop.
