Song of the Day: Kill – Henny Knightz

HENNY KNIGHTZ makes his entry on the blog a blazing concept single, titled ‘Kill’.

The accompanied video features the Hackney Avant Garde Rapper and producer forcibly ridding himself of habitual destructive behaviours. The video portrays a more likeable, attractive Henny Knightz, cleansed of his superficial imperfections but thwarted by the anarchic ticks of a frustrated emotional hooligan.

Henny Knightz is one half of the seminal duo The Knighthood Society alongside rapper Nicki Knightz. This is his first solo release since ‘Track Red’ back in 2019.

Song of the Day: Easy – Juliet July

‘Easy’ is the latest single from Dutch artist JULIET JULY, following ‘Sunday Afternoon’ which was praised by the likes of Earmilk, Stereofox, Fashionably Early and more for its quiet energy and deft minimalism. Once again, Juliet’s fusion of R&B, soul and jazz drifts in like a soft breeze across the ocean in ‘Easy’, which explores the possibilities that are open to us once we put negative thoughts aside.

Speaking in great detail about her new single, Juliet July says:

“As a creative, we need to deal with lots of opinions of others. How many times have we, as creatives, artists, entrepreneurs heard how difficult, risky and challenging it is or going to be to follow our dreams? What is our plan B? etc etc..I know some people mean well, while some are secretly just envious as they wished they had the courage to do the same.

Either way, I got tired of listening to these ‘warning’ voices about how difficult everything was going to be. And I wrote ‘Easy’ as an answer. Easy gives an alternate perspective on the road to following your true heart desires. This is not to say that you will never come across obstacles or that you can just sit around and wait for your dreams to manifest. I believe a lot in the power of thoughts and hearing everyday how difficult a task is going to be is in my opinion not the way to go about it. ‘Easy’ acts as a POSITIVE affirmation , as a reminder that when we truly listen to what our heart whispers everything is possible.”

Produced by Nelson Clark, ‘Easy’ is also accompanied with a video filmed on the South African coast and within a magical forest just on the outskirts of Cape Town, where Juliet worked and lived for a while expanding her creative endeavours for a couple of months. The video was filmed by Momentum Production, with colour editing by Manny Nickpour.

‘Easy’ and ‘Sunday Afternoon’ will feature on Juliet July’s upcoming ‘Palmtrees In The Mist’ EP.
