Joel Compass: Back To Me
We're really excited about this new singer and writer from South London.
We won't say too much about Joel just yet, suffice to say a) his surname is his real name, no gimmicks and b) we were lucky enough to get a sneak peak of three other tracks that he will be releasing as an EP called Astronaut. The EP will be out in June on the brilliant Black Butter (Woz, Rudimental, Gorgon City etc etc).
Comparisons to Frank Ocean, The Weeknd and Jamie Woon are being boundied about but we think it won't be long before others will be touted as 'The Next Joel Compass'.
You can't see Compass in this (very dark and messed up) video, but he assures us you'll be seeing a lot more of his face in the next one. Special mention to the video directors Joel Schwartz and Cooper Roberts for a great 3:01minutes of intense narrative.
Wanna know who else didn't feature in their videos? Check this lot...
Wiley (standard) (also check pre-fame curly haired Emeli Sande in this one)
The Child Of Lov
Naughty Boy (Ok, he sort of does but only glimpses behind his hoodie)
There's lots more, we're sure, but we have things to do. Like eat biscuits etc.
