Psychedelic Ghanaian Artist Psykhi Transcends Genres with New EP 'Forest People'
London-based Ghanaian artist psykhi just released a new EP titled "Forest People", a collection of five tracks that merge punk, indie, rock, and rap. The EP's focus track, "Dyed in Wool", is a punk-inspired song that incorporates poetic lyrics about standing up for what one believes in. The track's rhythm is supported by elastic bass and upbeat drums, which contribute to the cathartic choruses in which the instrumentation and psykhi's voice let loose. The EP is a representation of psykhi's introspection and musings on human behavior, and it is a collection of songs that will resonate with the outsiders and anyone who has been lost.
The music video for "Dyed in Wool" was directed by No Format and features a greyscale performance that reflects the late '70s and '80s punk aesthetic.
Speaking about the new EP, psykhi shares: “Forest people for me felt like the harnessing of spirit. To find love for oneself and to be able to stand up for what you believe in.”
