Ever-evolving Irish-Nigerian artist 7th Obi has been steadily building an army of loyal fans since the release of his much-acclaimed debut ‘Taxi Club’.
Melodic new single ‘replace me’ perfectly balances elements of indie with alternative R&B and soul, and looks at the ways in which mental health and trauma can contribute towards the breakdown in communication between two people.
“A song like this, for those who know me, isn’t a surprise. This one is for the black kids that love indie FIFA music, listening to The Script, Arctic Monkeys etc. I want to show that black kids don’t have to only be boxed into hip hop and R&B.”
With support from the likes of Highsnobiety, The Irish Times and RTE, this Essex-based talent looks set to take on his biggest year yet.
