Demigosh of Blackfish Collective shares new video for ‘Technicolour Flowers’

“‘Technicolour Flowers’ emerged from the need to express an internal tension between an inherited tradition of Nigerian polyamory and the pressures of western masculinity…”

 

Demigosh has been contributing to forward-thinking music in Ireland for a long time, through his work with The Notas and more recently with Blackfish Collective, and this solo outing further proves the strength of the now London-based artist.

Earmarked in the “13 young artists shaping Nigeria’s creative scene” by DAZED, his music draws on his Nigerian, Yoruba roots as well as his Irish upbringing.

“‘Technicolour Flowers’ emerged from the need to express an internal tension between an inherited tradition of Nigerian polyamory and the pressures of western masculinity, with Ade’s [Demigosh] own more vulnerable and flawed human impulses suspended precariously between the two. DEMIGOSH represents Ade’s higher consciousness, his ancestral wisdom, and future evolution. From the elevated position of empathetic observer he narrates Ade’s struggle to relinquish feelings of ownership over his partner, his consuming and destructive desire for her, and his inability to love her in the way she asked him to – openly.”

Blackfish Collective play The Sound House on Friday February 15, tickets from €10 with support from Evans Junior and Damola. Click here for more. Check out the new video below with art direction by Maximilian Wasinski.
