Already treating listeners to the stellar EP Sleepwalkers earlier this year, Multi-disciplined British-Nigerian artist Zack Oke continues his fine form of releases this year as he unveils his latest single “Blinded”. A pensive, near melancholy affair with deep bass, distant guitars and rumbling percussion, Zack’s distinctively resonant tone captivates from the jump.
A tale of navigating introversion, internal conflict, and millennial drama, Zack’s free-flow delivery, smoothly transitioning through lyrical storytelling and melodies points to confidence and self-assuredness as an artist while still breaking ground. The embodiment of a ‘DIY artist’ has produced, recorded and mixed all his music for the past two years from his bedroom, Zack’s approach to music has been lauded greatly, with placements on several of Spotify’s big editorial playlists including New Music Friday UK, Fresh Finds and Lush and Chill.
His recent track “Slumbr” has gone on to garner over 100k streams independently in 2020, speaking to the buzz around him already. Naturally defying stereotypes as a young black artist who grew up around an eclectic mix of peers, Zack Oke continues to demonstrate that he is more than a rapper, with his identity and influences flowing as freely as his repertoire does.
Positioning himself as a new voice in the scene with a truly intriguing story of duality to tell, be sure to keep your eyes and ears on him as he has a game-changing 2020.
