UK rapper Little Simz has just released the video clip to her single "Gratitude" (featuring The Hics). Not only am I excited to share this because I'm a massive Simz fan, but it's one of the very first ever Indie Shuffle video posts!
This is the second video to come from her killer 2015 album A Curious Tale of Trials + Persons, following on from the ominous "Dead Body."
Directed by Jeremy Cole, the clip was filmed at the #FeesMustFall protests which took place in October this year, in Cape Town, South Africa. The protests began in the wake of an announcement that universities were raising fees by more than 10 percent in 2016.
The video features scenes massive street protests, classrooms, scenery and more, interspersed with footage of Simz herself. The clip is not only visually engaging, but it documents and celebrates the "spirit of change," with the event reflecting the lyrics in a particularly relevant, thought-provoking manner.
A Curious Tale of Trials + Persons is out now.
