Love Ssega - Hot Electrolytes

We had the good fortune of catching Love Ssega live a few weeks back at Hoxton Square and Bar Kitchen where he absolutely smashed his set accompanied by his phenomenal band, Rachel Espeute on Bass, Guitarist Annie Wagstaff, Aidan Glover on Keys and Friendly Fires Jack Savidge on Drums.  

This single, taken from his forthcoming EP 'Emancipation', is a rousing explosion of sounds and themes that surprise and entertain in equal measure. His history in the music industry and the decision to take control of his own career feels very present in his lyrics but he deftly avoids making the songs too insular.  

“The whole EP is about reclaiming the narrative and showing yes we know what’s going on, can see what’s going on, but that doesn’t mean we’ve given up and have no energy or passion left. Yes it’s gray and we have concrete council blocks, but we also have record numbers of people seeing the works of David Hockney at the Tate, and Alexander McQueen’s Savage Beauty at the V&A,”
  explains the singer.

The video for 'Hot Electrolytes' has influences from the Eduardo Paolozzi exhibition at Whitechapel Gallery and was co-directed by Kat Hassan. It is a treat for all your senses and you can check it out below;
