Watch Ghostpoet video ‘Cold Win’

Two years on from the release of his Mercury nominated debut, Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam, Ghostpoet aka Obaro Ejimiwe releases ‘Cold Win’ – the second single from his new album Some Say I So I Say Light to be released September 24th through Play It Again Sam/[PIAS] America.

The video for ‘Cold Win’, which was partly shot in Iceland, brings a nomadic feel to the song, utilizing images of wide open roads and endless landscapes. Directed by Cyrille de Vignemont, Ghostpoet is featured as a character unwilling to hit the road and to leave his life behind.  Raindrops come together to form hobo symbols, a series of characters used by the rootless vagabonds who appeared in the USA at the beginning of the 20th century to communicate below the radar of civilized society.  Guided by a sensorial narrative, an atmospheric mood gradually develops in the middle of those infinite landscapes, beautifully complementing the song. Watch the video HERE.

“Not since Massive Attack’s ‘Blue Lines’ has a heavy heart and urban dread been so absorbing” – Q
“That Murky world of electro clicks ticks and cosmonaut synths that Thom Yorke has been dipping into for years, Ghostpoet lives for real.” – The NME
