Here’s some new music for your manic Monday:
First up is the new track “Shapes” by Nigerian-American rock-soul singer out of Philadelphia, RoseMary Fiki.
The song is accompanied by a cool music video that was directed by M. Larsen and Karl Hicks and was inspired by Andy Warhol, Basquiat, American Horror Story, and The Walking Dead. The song is the lead single off of Fiki’s sophomore album ‘The Great Unknown’.
