Following on from the release of his debut EP Snakes and Blaggers on 12 October, Slowie has returned with an inventive music video for its opening track "BRSlang". The piano-laden, Gemmy-produced number sees the Bristol MC deploy his signature rapid-fire flows (see: "Thinking that you're living in peace and matrimony? / I'm gonna take you all out, one by one and slowly") over booming basslines and rolling percussion. As the song's title suggests, Slowie's West Country dialect has a strong influence on his lyrics – during the chorus, he claims to be "gurt, proper gurt" [gutter]. It's hard to disagree.
The ambitious accompanying visuals, produced by The Candy Farm, see the Horfield lyricist embracing the oft-attributed farmer stereotype, with frames flicking between a grungy tunnel, illuminated by pyrotechnics, and a Somerset farm. Speaking to us earlier in October, Slowie explained the inspiration behind the shoot's location:
"I sound like a farmer. There's no two ways about it, and I get that 100%. Part of the "BRSlang" video's filmed on a farm. I wanted to try and incorporate the farm and the city lifestyle."
