Serving up one of the slick­est videos of the year, multi-faceted hip hop artist Under­tow releases fresh visu­als for his single ‘On Sight’ filmed by Kenna Filmz released via Like­minded Record­ings.

The single was writ­ten over a peri­od of time pre/post CO-VID, and is about his life and how the rap­per lived, wheth­er it was good or bad, he just keep mov­ing for­ward. It ref­er­ences things that were hap­pen­ing at the time of the writ­ing.

He goes on to say, “Friends were going through vari­ous struggles, from break­ups to heart-attacks, this song is about how I per­ceived that at the time and how that affected me. From an artist­ic point of view, the track is about doing what you want, main­tain­ing your vis­ion and integ­rity. Don’t abide by the rules with art as it’s an expres­sion of your­self,”

“The mes­sage is no mat­ter how bur­ied you are in life, men­tal thoughts, day to day hard­ship, and how down you feel, you just need to push on and get what you came here for,”

The accom­pa­ny­ing visu­al over­flows with energy and see’s Under­tow roam through the streets of Sydney with con­vic­tion. Cap­tur­ing the glow of the city and it’s sur­round­ings.

Hav­ing made a bold and con­fid­ent state­ment with­in his career, Under­tow is no stranger to the stage. He has over 20 years ten­ure enter­tain­ing Aus­trali­an and New Zea­l­and audi­ences nev­er sway­ing too far from the spot­light. Since releas­ing his debut LP ‘Minds Believ­ing’ in 2010 to some great reviews and recog­ni­tion. He then went on to release two albums and an EP with the act Kobra Kai. As a found­ing mem­ber the D&B/Grime/Hip Hop/Electronica act Kobra Kai made a huge impact on the Aus­trali­an scene. Fol­low­ing that release, ’Light in the Dis­tance’ dropped 2018 and a col­lab­or­a­tion with Sydney pro­du­cer O.T and Dj Maniak for 2019’s ‘Stair­cases’ release.

Under­tow has gone on to per­fect his craft of con­nect­ing meta­phors and syl­lables over craf­ted instru­ment­als. Along the way he shared the stage with some of the best in the busi­ness, includ­ing Caspa, Dizzee Ras­cal, Scratch Per­verts, Dr Octa­gon, Lyr­ics Born, The Four Owls, Ocean Wis­dom, Jam Bax­ter, MIA, Foot­sie and more.

Undertow’s upcom­ing EP ‘On Sight’ sees him go back to his bass music roots, with pro­duc­tion handled by UK pro­du­cers and all around a 140 BPM, his abil­ity to switch in and out of mod­ern hip hop, grime and any­thing in between is what really makes this release stand-out.
