Independent Artist Of The Week: CLYPSO
May 8th 2017
The scattered, electronic afropunk produced by Sydney artist CLYPSO is guaranteed to force even the clumsiest non-boogiers onto the d-floor.
Infusing fast paced jungle beats, a grime-fueled baseline and vocals that could almost belong to Santigold, CLYPSO’s new single ‘YOLO’ is energetic, dynamic and not without a hint of cheek. Her marimba-tinged bangers have already landed her support slots at Rare Finds, BEAMS Festivals, Waywards and the Princess Nokia tribute afterparty.
Keep an eye out for the music video for ‘Yolo’, and in the mean time, check out CLYPSO’s ecstatic, groove-inspiring track ‘Higher’, below:
