Watch: Benjamin Clementine - "Condolence"

29 July 2014, 10:45 | Written by The Line of Best Fit

​Fast-rising North London artist Benjamin Clementine announces his second EP, Glorious You, and new UK/European tour dates with the video for “Condolence”.

​Shot in stunning black and white and featuring Clementine wandering city streets and isolated moors, “Condolence” portrays an artist growing evermore in confidence. With off-cut hip-hop beats rumbling beneath stoic bellows and trickling piano, “Condolence” is arguably Clementine’s strongest and most direct cut to date.

Speaking of his career to date, Clementine said: “No one can really stop you from doing what you want to do, but only yourself. I am from Edmonton, North London, where the youths are apparently said to be quite rowdy and criminal minded. But as my English literature teacher once remarked; ‘there are no requisite differences between hearsays and where frogs play; they are all full of categorical shit’”.
