Little Simz drops the visuals for last month's single "Offence."
The first of two singles UK rapper Little Simz released last month has been given the music video treatment. The video for "Offence," directed by Charlie Di Placido and Josh Lloyd Watson, places Simz at the scene of a jam-rehearsal in a roughshod recording space, tantamount to the "Bomb Squad" aesthetic distilled in the drumline: a tightened snare played to perfection by a School of Rock graduate.
Soon enough, the drumkit setup fades into obscurity, and Simz is aptly surrounded by a pack of youths, holding rank behind the supposed ringleader played by hers truly. The generational uprising coerced by Simz is inevitably only in the introductory phase, as a backroom cache of tools lays hidden in the densely crammed "nowhere" of the compound.
Simz' imagery is strongly suggestive of an attitude she's had to adopt in response to the rancid effect of "automatic thinking." Even the b-boys and b-girls move like a tactical unit on the offensive. Check out "Offence" and comment below. "Offence" is by all accounts, that a message can be convivial and serious, all at once.
