Blacksmith has released the music video entitled, 'Everything Is Blue'. The visuals are a cheeky poke at the UK’s timeline in the pandemic, where blame has been shifted from the government to other countries to then the general public themselves. Blacksmith envisions himself in the shoes of the figureheads who were at the forefront of it all, as he tries to make sense of a year that has disappeared through all of our fingertips. “The concept of the video the following suit with the idea being that I’ve been isolated for too long so now everything I’m seeing is a reflection of myself because it feels like it's been that long since life has had a sense of normality..walking past myself in the street..watching the news and being confused that I’m seeing myself as a news reporter or Boris Johnson, ordering food and seeing myself as the deliveroo driver etc..and its the visual that really helps drive home the message of the song”.
After forging his career as an MC and producer, Blacksmith snagged support slots for some of the most established underground acts, from Common and Jurassic 5 to Mos Def and Dilated Peoples. He has released a string of successful singles, with his biggest hit ‘Through The Melody’ racking up just shy of 130,000 streams on Spotify alone, as well as ‘Peace’, a project he deems his “most ambitious” that is a collaboration with Los Angeles’ giants Rakaa and Marc 7 of Dilated Peoples & Jurassic 5'.
