Brixton-based talent ESS_WEST returns today with some beautifully tender wholesome visuals to accompany his latest single, ‘You’.
Described by the artist as ‘a short tale of appreciation for what is yours’, the Garreth Chan-directed video employs storytelling and cinematic techniques to carry the message that you are enough for someone, regardless of life’s circumstances.
Since it’s release earlier in the summer, ‘You’ has found its way on to the airwaves of prominent outlets like Kiss FM, BBC 1Xtra and Capital Xtra – pushing ESS_WEST’s name further into the mainstream.
Emerging from London’s creative hub of Brixton is hotly-tipped newcomer ESS_WEST.
Already a critic’s favourite (with praise from heavyweight tastemakers like Wonderland, Dummy and GRM Daily), this talent crafts refreshingly unique and emotive fusions of UK rap and indie.
Inspired by the action of putting yourself first, melodic new single ‘You’ showcases the artist’s work perfectly. With its summer-tinged production and thoughtful lyricism, the song presents itself as one of the most impressive releases of the month.
