Silas Futura unpacks his thoughts on a generation rich in possibility but low on funds in new single 'Compulsion', calling it "a statement on the time in history we have been born into". Featuring a killer verse from fellow Tāmaki hip-hop up-and-comer TEI., 'Compulsion' is the second drop from upcoming EP Pluto, and Silas McClintock's first collection since making the transition from Bobandii to the Silas Futura moniker. On top of the high energy single and news of an EP on the horizon, Silas, TEI. and his band star in the 'Official Live Session Video', directed by Benji Taylor and made with support from NZ On Air. What might read as a simple concept done well is actually an incredible feat of coordination and stamina, as the clip had to be shot in one, handheld take. Just watching Silas Futura dance for three-minutes straight, knowing full well they would have already made several attempts, makes me feel like I've done more than enough exercise for the day...

Silas Futura's EP 'Pluto' is out Friday 26th March.
