Birmingham's SIPHO. Explores The Duality Of Existence With "BODIES"

May 26, 2021

Multi-hyphenate musician SIPHO. is re-defining what it means to be an artist of today. He creates work that transcends musical barriers and expectations, choosing to showcase the inner workings of his mind in a fresh and authentic way. His latest release, "Bodies", opens with booming kick drums and crunchy guitar licks, gradually revealing a distorted interpretation of the UKG classic "Sorry" by Monsta Boy.

The visuals feature pops of pastel colours which juxtapose against the somewhat sinister tone of the song but reveals the expansive levels of SIPHO.'s creativity. "Bodies" follows on from his double debut "Moonlight", both acting as an entry point into the kind of sounds and textures we can expect from his forthcoming EP, And God Said. The eight-track body of work is set to be released on June 25 and is an in-depth meditation on themes like religion, morality and rebellion, creating a space where SIPHO. can openly question all societal norms one song at a time.

A new addition to the Dirty Hit roster, this is proving to be an exciting year for the Birmingham-based artist, so pay attention to his space and get into "Bodies" below.
