Rapper, songwriter and producer C86 releases spine-tingling visuals for new single ‘The Dark Ages’.
A lyricist, songwriter and producer , C86 has become a mainstay in the North London music scene, having performed across several venues and open mic nights in the area, including a standout show at the O2 Academy Angel.
Since breaking out as a solo artist, C86 has had multiple tracks receive radio recognition on BBC Introducing.
Plucked from his debut EP Shadow in the Darkness, ‘The Dark Ages’ is a monument to minimalism, pairing sharp synths and heart-pounding percussion with sober meditations that reveals the artist’s seemingly inescapable unrest.
Shot in shadow lighting, utilising reverse stop motion, the video sees a stone-faced C86 embrace the gothic, as he delivers a sermon on the state of today’s society under the flickering half-light of a candlelit room.
