“Summer time lifestyle / always with the sunnies / You know me / I’m nice with the shandee’s…”
What we predict will undoubtedly be an anthem for the 2014/2015 summer season, ‘On The Low’, combines the future wizardry of Card On Spokes with the smooth smart mampara rhymes of Okmalumkoolkat and a soulful, unavoidably mesmerising hook from Nonku. The powerhouse trio has delivered a sophistipop gem, drenched in them nca summer feels, which is bound to keep you singing along with your head bopping on the back beat.
The track artwork was designed by JNN KPN and the video, produced by naas, takes the form of a lyric video. The idea for a lyric video just felt right as it seemed like fairly unexplored territory in South Africa, and especially considering how being able to rap confidently along with Okmalumkoolkat is an irresistible notion. It was shot and edited by Thor Rixon with some additional drone footage courtesy of Card On Spokes. Shooting took place in both Cape Town and Johannesburg, emphasising the distance between two characters on the closing end of a summer romance.
