East London born singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Azekel shares the video for the first chapter of his forthcoming debut album, titled ‘Family’. The album will be unveiled in three chapters, each centred on a specific narrative (‘Family’, ‘Mental Health’ and ‘Youth’), before being weaved together as a short film accompanying the full record which will be released in the spring. ‘Family’ features the recently released trio of songs ‘Black Is Beauty (Daughters)’, ‘Don’t Wake The Babies’ & ‘Can We Have Fun (In This House Tonight?).’
The video, directed by The Rest is beautifully realised, using a bold and rich tapestry of text, images and colours. As with all of Azekel’s releases, his music and visuals provide a deeply personal commentary on his own experience alongside wider observations in society; nuanced, intelligent and politicised.
