The urban glow of South London wouldn’t be the same without its street art graffiti at Croydon town centre. Not to mention, some of its abandoned spaces are aimed at catching the eye of locals and strangers. Today, you can experience a little bit of that through Ultra_eko‘s latest music video for “Phoenix Rising.“ Despite the snowy winter of February, shooting the visuals along with his son on an iPhone was such a fun activity. Like rhymes that come and go, only thought-provoking verses will stay with you. Especially because he spits about the harsh reality of many people.
Nevertheless, I do believe there’s a hopeful element in his lyrics. Indeed, the chorus takes you to see light at the end of the tunnel. Plus, the bombastic beats are in close synchronization with his intense delivery. That being said, there’s so much power with this line: “See the place burn down to the ground and be reborn in the fiery flames like a Phoenix rising, a Phoenix rising”
Whether or not you live in South London, “Phoenix Rising” will resonate with all who listen to it. In essence, it is the lead single from Ultra_eko’s forthcoming album, ‘Revelation.’ After large months of experimenting with different sounds during the lockdown, I’m sure more exciting things are still on the way. Check out his socials for more updates, you won’t regret it.
