Rak-Su have today released the video for their latest single, ‘Thunder’, taken from their brand new four track EP, ‘Rome’.
‘Thunder’ is a Reggaeton infused track reflecting the Barbadian heritage of Jamaal, who grew up singing gospel in church, and the video showcases the vocals and dance moves of every member in turn, as well as some groovy neon-and lycra clad dancers.
Each track on ‘Rome’ reflects the individual life experiences and musical styles of the artists. In addition to Jamaal’s Caribbean upbringing, Mustafa’s life has been one of winning beatboxing contests, while rappers Ashley and Myles have been making grime and trap music since their mid teens.
Speaking of the EP, Rak-Su said,
People don’t realise that before X Factor we were together as a band making music we loved & were inspired by. This EP allowed us to show some of the other sides to us… you get R&B, electronic, Afro-Caribbean Rak-Su. Fun, emotional, honest, party Rak-Su. We feel it’s a well-rounded snap shot into who we are both musically and as people.
