Multi-genre artist Odeal arrives with the stunning video to ‘More Life’, coming forth with one of the most pivotal tracks that I’ve seen land this summer. The whole release has been expertly rolled out. Why? This song delivers a fresh take on Alté, breaking the mould of contemporary afrobeat with visuals that encapsulate the global dialogue of black excellence – directed by Nata and 33BOUND.
This one has recently become a stand-out in my playlists and now with this latest release, it’s clear to see why he has garnered countless radio plays on Radio 1, 1Xtra and Capital Xtra.
There’s a real sense of sincerity that surfaces throughout, instantly making it a song to connect to listeners with. It’s not over-complicated, it’s what I would say is clinical in execution – a clear vision stylistically and musically, then with aesthetics too, something you can tell has undergone a masterful process from start to finish. Now that’s not to say the vibe might have switched up from the beginning. Let’s break it down a bit more. Vocally it’s refreshing how immersed in the music Odeal is, yet clearly still at the forefront. It’s an uplifting song with a story and it’s one to be enjoyed with and without company.
