Imugi 이무기 is out with a fun video to complement their single ‘Be Here Soon’. Singer and songwriter, Yery Cho, says  ‘Be Here Soon’ is about "falling into misconceptions. Waiting around endlessly for promises made by your own expectations. It's easier to dissociate than face the fact that no one really needs anyone but themselves. It's an ode to leaving behind disappointing relationships and moving onto embrace the many forms of self-care that self-love can bring.”

The video-animated by Nic Little, is a 3D VR reimagining-a trip into Imugi이무기’s world. The colours and playful vibes bounce with the beat of the song, to provide the experience of a trip into cyberspace.

‘Be Here Soon’ is available on all platforms

 

Shiraz & LSJ - Imported Smoke

Shiraz & LSJ are on a roll with the release of their latest album Imported Smoke coming on the back of their recent album Rap For Sport.

The front half of the album is packed with gutter raps and beats with the leading single Dwayne’ showcasing braggadocious but also broke man bars while the following track The Mish keeps along the same sort of ‘Day in the life’ type lyrics with an underlying diss to dirty politicians and cops. Towards the back end of the tape, AKLTown talks about the good and bad of growing up in the city of AKL, and Wylin serves as a prelude to this track touching on the same topics through metaphors and wordplay.

The duo show that rap really is a sport.

Bailey Wiley has presented us with a second single titled ‘Zaddy’ produced by Eno from her forthcoming self-titled EP, out on 17 May with A Label Called Success.

‘Zaddy’ is a reflection of Bailey’s experiences in love and life, accompanied a striking video that combines illustration and animation. The track details the battle of the sexes at the start of a relationship, playing on the things that are usually left unsaid.

"‘Zaddy’ is an expression of the battle; a tug of war, a power struggle” Bailey says.

Blaze The Emperor has released the much anticipated single and self-directed visuals for 'Before', described as a song written about two perspectives of a relationship in the early stages. “The first half is from the view of the male and second verse is from the females perspective. There are always two sides to a story and things don't always appear as they seem at first glance”.

The music video for 'Before' was filmed at the Willowbrook Park private estate and shot by Ammonation’s Connor Pritchard.
