As Ghostpoet, the Mercury Prize nominated artist Obaro Ejimiwe will be releasing the follow up to his critically acclaimed Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam on September 24th on [PIAS] America Recordings. Titled, Some Say I So, Some Say I Light, Ejimiwe continues his reputation for crafting music that’s deeply personal and full of a melancholy dread reminiscent of Tricky and of Massive Attack.
“Cold Win” is the latest single from that new effort, and Ejimiwe sings his lyrics with an expressive yet languid crooning, baritone behind an icily sparse track. In some way, this track in particular reminds me quite a bit of a chillier Mount Kimbie.
The video which was partially shot in Iceland, brings a restless, nomadic feel to the track and has some interesting imagery.
