When we think about UK Grime newcomers, many will go straight to the melody-laden rapping of Parisian-born Octavian — who in many ways feels to have relished in perfectly crafted vocals and beat accompaniments. There’s nothing wrong with that, but, as an audience we have become accustomed to a sort of comfortability within the current musical generation — ignoring the consistent torquing and developing of various music subcultures, especially within the new generation of Grime musicians who epitomize its grungy-ness. One of these standout artists is Northampton-based slowthai, whose notoriously gritty, outlandish instrumentals and crude, often controversial lyrics possess a certain essence that slaps you across the face like a fiery gust of untethered and unfiltered obscurity. If there’s a simple way to describe him, he’s a reenvisioned Punk-rocker born in the era of Grime.

With that in mind, slowthai is back with a new mind-bogglingly ingenious visual for “Peace Of Mind,” supposedly off of his debut album Nothing Great About Britain, set to drop this year via Method Records. His notoriously off-beat and strained vocals remain intact throughout, layering the Grime-styled breakbeat with his visually depictive lyrics of everyday Northampton life. As is usual, the track is paired with an equally off-kilter video that is just as in your face and gritty as the song itself.

Take a look above, and let us know your thoughts on UK Grime’s latest up-and-comer.
