Australian beat master What So Not, singer-songwriter George Maple and Atlanta rapper Rome Fortune have teamed up on a killer new track titled “Buried.” Premiered via Pitchfork, the atmospheric trap-tinged single draws from each of the trio’s specialties: hard-hitting, progressive electronic production, sultry melodies and thoughtful flowing verses. Co-directed by Leticia Dare and Andrew O’Toole, the accompanying video is littered with stunning slow-motion underwater shots and surreal transitions. All three artists released a joint statement about the meaning behind “Buried”:
We’re all guilty of our vices. Whether a flickering thought or a lifestyle, our obsession with fame, money, sex & power drives a paradox of wonderful & horrible behavior.
