Creative Review New Music
After releasing the lead single ‘Death By Dimitri’ (described as “the wonky love child of Travis Scott” – Jamz Supernova) Tony Njoku returns with fierce new hiphop collaborative single ‘ZORO’ out now, along with the announcement of new EP ‘KILLTONY’ out 12th Feb
Adopting more of that genre-bending aesthetic he is getting known for, ‘Zoro’ showcases the artist as one of the more diverse and adventurous artists working today. Taking influence from the trap-inspired hip-hop sound and combining it with a fresh and ethereal sound palette and production gives this new release a distinct and remarkable vision that sees him take his rich sound to a whole new level.
Speaking about the new single, Tony said, “This is a big, high octane, quick in and out track. Like a hot flash in the frying pan. It features a long guest rap verse by Zoro Jackson. A new direction for me for sure, though I’ve alluded to wanting to do rap collabs, so it’s a very welcomed change.”
Alongside his new material, the artist will also be accompanying the enigmatic Ghostpoet on his UK Spring tour next year. See below for the full list of live dates:
26th Feb – SWX, Bristol
27th Feb – Academy 2, Manchester
28th Feb – Rescue Rooms, Nottingham
5th March – EartH, London
