Video: Rup – SYLO

Making a comeback since 2009’s Just Woke Up London rapper Rupert Acton returns with the new EP SYLO, recently unveiling visuals for the title track.

SYLO, standing for Sorting Your Life Out, takes inspiration from self help guides with the video spinning out a story of Rup’s progression as a life coach and passage to stardom – all set against a background of biting satire and cultural references. A crowd funded project with an extensive cast list the video is an impressive effort complete with cinematic night shots of London and stylish graphics throughout. Musically SYLO is catchy lead for the new EP with Rup also able to demonstrate some witty and reflective lyricism throughout the verses.

The full SYLO EP also features the tracks Only Human and Staycation and is available from Bandcamp.
