Set within a minimalist calm of only a muffled piano, light tapping and an airy melodic hook that coos “I just want to live life and survive it,” Ghostpoet’s “Survive It” is the story of a man who is rattled by his fears and hopes. The video, released a few weeks back, garnered a lot of attention for Ghostpoet. Fader wrote, “The pacing on Ghostpoet’s “Survive It” video is beyond perfect.” In the video, Ghostpoet – wearing his night robe and holding his tea mug for the entirety of the video – wanders around the courtyard of his London apartment complex in the middle of the night while his demons literally and figuratively attack him.
This week the “Survive It” single is officially released and available for purchase as well as a special Survive It (feat. Fabiana Palladino) EP project. The EP features remixes of “Survive It” by Koreless, Automatics dBridge, Deep Medi’s Quests, and none other than Roots Manuva to lay a verse.
