Watch Eku Fantasy's futuristic music video for "Living On The Outside."
Eku Fantasy is the new cross-continental project from UK-based Nigerian artist Olugbenga Adelekan (of Metronomy) and the South African-based Gareth Jones (better known as Jumping Back Slash)—both artists that we've covered a lot for their respective work.
Before ever meeting in person, the duo had been collaborating over the internet from their respective hubs, eventually linking up in the small town of Knysna on South Africa's Garden Route to record their debut EP, EF1, due April 20.
Eku Fantasy's music blends Jones' dystopian-sounding production with Olugbenga's sharp vocals, which don't shy away from addressing complex issues of race and politics.
Today, we're premiering the striking music video for "Living On The Outside," a track that tackles themes of assimilation and alienation, as experienced by both artists who are 'transplants' in their current home countries.
