New Track: Farewell – ThinŒur (ft. Fang The Great)

Inspired by the iconic cinema moment in Breakfast At Tiffany’s, THINCOEUR teams up with fellow Parisian and rapper Fang The Great on emotive new video for ‘Farewell’.

Combining Fang The Great’s cold melodies and unique cadence with a melancholic trap instrumental, the track explores love, loss, friendship and loneliness. Born Eliade Krön, THINCOEUR explains that ‘Farewell’ “relates to partings, starting with Fang The Great’s positive outlook when he raps about distance making the heart grow fonder.” Comparatively, the farewell depicted by Krön is towards a lover, where he says he may never return, but he wishes the best for the girl he loves. This bittersweet message of self-preservation is bolstered by Audrey Hepburn’s famous quote from the 1961 film “People don’t belong to people. I’m not gonna let anyone put me in a cage.”

The accompanying video, directed by Randolph Lungela, takes a darker approach, as the protagonist attempts to come to terms with the loss of a loved one. Flicking between past and present, the cold colouring of the current day juxtaposes the heady flashback scenes, tinted in a warm sepia tone, as she turns to alcohol and drugs to cope with her bereavement.

‘Farewell’ is the first taste from forthcoming album that explores the seven facets of love through poignant songwriting and masterful production. In 2017, the artist released ‘Think’, a concept album separated into three acts tracing an emotionally conflicted young man seeking self-acceptance – via dark hip-hop beats and gritty vocals. The new LP ‘7 Layers of Love’, was inspired by cultural influences from cities such as his hometown of Paris, New York and Reykjavik.

Multi-layered and effortless, ‘Farewell’ displays  THINCOEUR‘s talent for writing emotional and honest music, fusing elements of hip hop and electronica. Check out the video.

New Track: Undone – Art of Shades (ft. Sylo Nozra)

Franco-Italian producer ART OF SHADES has teamed up with singer Sylo Nozra for the release of single, ‘Undone’, taken from the forthcoming EP set to drop this spring via his record label, Sounds of Shades.

Although ART OF SHADES is based in Paris and Sylo Nozra resides in Toronto, thanks to the power of the internet, it didn’t stop the pair cooking up a four-minute production, packaged in a downtempo electro-hip-hop slammer. Through this collaboration, they became great friends and are now both a part of the same Canadian squad, OTrip.

‘Undone’ marks the slick beatmaker’s new musical direction and his request to collaborate with different musicians across the globe.

Check out the video to ‘Undone’.
