Video: Otis Mensah – Breath of Life Ft. Hemlock Ernst

In Hip Hop by James Wijesinghe

Sheffield’s first poet laureate Otis Mensah has dropped new animated visuals for ‘Breath of Life (Ft. Hemlock Ernst)’. Packed with multisyllabics, the tightly written track is one of many singles lifted from Mensah’s upcoming project #OtisMensahExists. His verses sandwich a striking feature from Hemlock Ernst, aka Samuel Herring of Baltimore synth-pop band Future Islands. The introspective tone of Brelstaff’s delicate and jazzy instrumental is enhanced by the video, echoing ‘chill study beats’ animations. Check it out below and look out for more on the way…
