Little Simz Releases Energetic Video For Offence

Wednesday, 03 October 2018 Written by Helen Payne

“I’m Jay Z on a bad day, Shakespeare on my worst days."

Little Simz is not shy. On September single Offence, her first offering since her 2016 debut 'Stillness In Wonderland', she spits out bars over dramatic orchestral instrumentation and a sticky bassline. Simz says it from her chest, and doesn’t care who she offends.

Offence now has an accompanying video, which depicts the artist reigning supreme surrounded by spectacular dancers in a dusty and dark industrial area. Director Charlie Di Placido noted:

Having been Little Simz fans from the get go, we've always wanted to collaborate on a music video with her. We loved the track when we heard it and couldn't wait to bring our distinctive dance style to the visual. We have been workshopping a lot this year with our choreographer Nat Zangi and a group of very talented young dancers through AMCK Dance. We had a lot of fun with Simbi casting from that pool of dancers and the combined passion of everyone involved has shone through, resulting in something we are immensely proud of. There’s also a dancer’s edit on the way as well so look out for that too.”

Simz aditionally recently released the track Boss.

There’s something new, yet familiar, about its melodies, its heart-warming immediacy and the effortless chemistry that oozes from the bewitching songs within. We’re basically talking the musical equivalent of love at first sight, which is exactly what fans of bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and American roots music will doubtless feel after hearing Jawbone’s quietly magnificent self-titled bow.

Friction is naturally created by expectations rubbing up against the mechanics of making music in a fresh formation, often leading to overhyped records that feel like a tired exhalation of breath from their first note.
'We Wanted To Reach People on a Personal Level': Pijn Discuss The Genre-Defying Power Of 'Loss'
Mon 12 Nov 2018
A striking development in the past decade or so has been the extent to which people discover music through mood as opposed to genre. Streaming services have adapted to perceived consumer demand by releasing reams of playlists tailored to every emotion or context imaginable, from deeply depressed to “songs to sing to in the car”. This has its upsides and downsides for a band like Pijn.

Mick Jenkins - Pieces Of A Man (Album Review)
Tue 20 Nov 2018
Mick Jenkins was riding the crest of a wave when his breakout mixtape 'The Water[s]' dropped in the summer of 2014. Talented heads like Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, Noname and Saba would all go on to emerge from the same bubbling Chicago hip-hop scene, but Jenkins had positioned himself in critics' minds as the moody and technically gifted older brother. He already appeared fully formed in an artistic sense, framing highly conceptual songwriting with jazz-influenced verses and a raspy vocal delivery.
