It explores race in the UK...

South London's Theodor Black has shared the powerful visual for new single 'Sub Culture'.

The London artist previously worked as a member of Reservoir crew, before breaking out on his own.

Linking with fellow London based musician Dywer on production, new track 'Sub Culture' is an intense, astonishingly potent return.

An exploration of race in the UK, it tackles police brutality and the unfair manner in which Black women are treated.

Incredibly timely, it was actually written some time before the George Floyd protests pushed these issues into mainstream debate.

“I wrote it about a year ago and funnily enough it just seemed to fit into the context of the times we’re currently in,” he explains. “I was angry about a lot of things when I wrote it, my filter was completely switched off and I ended up writing what I would say is one of the most honest pieces of music that I’ve composed so far.”

The raw video channels the energy of seminal French film La Haine, and were directed by Louis Lincoln-Bottcher.

Theodor adds: “The visuals are very fitting and really tie in well with the song, it’s raw and expressive of the issues that we as the black community currently face.”

Tune in now.
