Earlier this year, slowthai released his debut album, Nothing Great About Britain, to critical acclaim across the board. Its autobiographical nature and nuanced pronunciation of the state of affairs within the UK is mesmerizing and hard to look away from; given his mercurial nature and excitable style, Nothing Great About Britain has been nominated for the 2019 Mercury Prize because of the great work housed within. Similarly, the visuals for “Toaster” are just as unique as the album. You’ll find slowthai revisiting his Northampton home, reminiscing about his upbringing while interjecting a live performance throughout his walk around. It’s a simple, yet beautiful video that displays the dichotomy between his aggression as a rapper and and vulnerability as a person.
slowthai will be performing at the Velvet Underground in Toronto on September 12th — you can buy tickets here.
