Greentea Peng Returns With New 'MAN MADE' Extract "Kali V2"

April 14, 2021

Following the announcement of her highly-anticipated debut album, MAN MADE, with lead single "Nah It Ain't The Same" in February, Bermondsey-born singer Greentea Peng is back to guarantee more trippy melodies with the album's second single, "Kali V2". The new track is the follow-up to her Earbuds-produced 2017 track, "Kali V1", an ode to the Hindu goddess Kali Ma and a reflection on death and rebirth.

The visuals, shot by ABOVEGROUND, invite you down the rabbit hole into a red-bathed night of an urban-cityscape wonderland. A psychedelic trip into the experimental, political, meditative guided by the haunting sounds of her vocals. Wearing a top hat and in royal red, Greentea Peng positions herself as the woman here to make change, pledging to "rid this land free of rotten crown, I'm ready to make a new sound".

In a manifesto for the album, she said: "MAN MADE — an exploration of self and sound. A product of shifting paradigms both inner and outer. An ultrasonic trip. This album is an offering of healing, a provocation of Hu Man spirit soul.

"Out of tune with the industry and in tune with the universe, this is a 432hrz production. Deliberately detuned out of any Babylon standard. It is to be felt like a buzzing bee, in one's chest. A vibration. A jambalaya of expression, this project fits no genre, not to be digested easily by everyone.

"However, for those occupying the same space right now, upholding the frequency at such a transformative and challenging moment in time, I trust this sound will find you. Dedicated and inspired by the late Jimtastic, join me and my boys as we travel the Sonicsphere on the way back to centre, through the depths of apathy and the heights of interconnection through surrender. I offer you MAN MADE."
