One of the shining lights in the Australian hip-hop scene, Sampa The Great, ends 2018 with stellar new single "Energy."
Having recently won at the Australian Music Prize and Age Music Victoria Awards, "Energy" finds Sampa channelling Eryka Badu vibes as she expresses our need to balance our energy and invest time in the important things in life.
This low key track includes traditional chanting, a hypnotic beat and spoken word piece from Nadeem Din-Gabisi. The accompanying film clip is also an eye catching watch, further adding to the power of the track. Speaking on the track Sampa told Pilerats:
We need to constantly replenish both the masculine and feminine aspects of our energy. This song and visual symbolises finding this balance, thanking those who have supported this journey so far and bridging the gap between BBEE9 and the new music to come in 2019.
