slowthai has returned with another sick horror movie-inspired video for his cold new track, “Rainbow”.
Continuing to pave out his own lane with more visceral lyricism and politically-charged visuals, slowthai challenges notions of stereotyping and racism in the new track, which gets accompanied by more arching piano loops, jarring strings, and thai’s cutting lyricism that continues to set him apart from his peers.
The visuals are just as tripped-out, with the Northampton rapper jumping out from being buried alive before being chased by police in a forest and then morphing into a gorilla, climbing up big ben and freefalling during the song’s conclusion. Just the usual for the 23-year-old, then.
Check out the “Rainbow” visuals above, and in other UK music news, Dave and Fredo could well have a number one single on their hands with “Funky Friday”.
