sir Was, the Gothenburg-based artist, producer and multi-instrumentalist, has shared the latest cut from his upcoming debut album Digging a Tunnel – the soulful and rousing, ‘Revoke’.
Featuring a mix of hip-hop and electronica influences, the track’s real heart lies in it’s sparkling production and a vocal performance crammed full of soulful and ethereal tones – and a good helping of reverb too.
Watch the video, directed by Fredrik Egerstrand, below.
Egerstrand, who also directed Was’ previous videos ‘In The Midst’, ‘Falcon’ and ‘Minor Life’, explains how the video came together; “We met in the forest one shady night, while recording a video for Junip. Joel wanted to do a video at this very spot, the Pub Aberdeen. It’s a place we both pass daily. There is a common feeling in all the videos we try to accomplish. They all growth from where sir Was music origins. From a working class point of view. There is no stylish things going on, but hopefully there is human touch in every video.”
Digging a Tunnel is due out on March 10th via City Slang.
