Nothing Great About Britain.
Music at its most powerful is a sonic reflection of our times and SLOWTHAI is currently the foremost voice of Britain’s disenfranchised youth. Last years “Drug Dealer” put him on the map for many. His witty flow chastising the lamest of professions where most others glorify it was a refreshing change and he carries forward this unique view on his debut album, Nothing Great about Britain. Northampton’s stumbling outsider comes across as a modern day Mike Skinner with a sprinkling of Dizzee Rascal and nods to Johnny Rotten. His raw, comical rhymes sound right at home on the grime bangers, hip hop blazers and punk influenced pogo tracks which make up this coming of age release. His brilliant videos reference Alex and his Droogs from A Clockwork Orange amongst many other astute British cultural references.
The album is out now as well as his new single with Skepta guesting. Yesterday he just announced his UK ‘Bet Ya A £5er Tour’ with tickets going for, you guessed it, a fiver each.
