Murkage are going places.
The multi-discipline Manchester collective have been doing strange things to hip hop for some time, gently refining their voice on the fringes of the scene.
This summer, though, saw Murkage begin to break through. New cut 'La Plage' received Next Hype honours on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show, while Clash previously anointed it as Track Of The Day.
As Clash online editor Mike Diver put it at the time: "Murkage are poised for a breakthrough, ready to rewrite the rulebook of British rap."
Now prepare yourself for the video. Shot in black and white, the striking visuals are both hyper-stylised and deeply challenging - smashing together light and shade, it's every bit as unmissable as the track itself.
Check out the video now.
