Chatterjee on the video:
“It’s 5 am, the world is asleep. But Remi is awake. He is awake every night, trying to blend up a wild and fruity elixir. Will he perfect his recipe, or will it turn out to be a toxic witches brew? 5 A.M. is a multi-layered track musically and lyrically. The accompanying video is the same. It takes a dark story and dances through genres and moods, standing by Remi’s side as he crosses between silky smooth vocals and strong, punctuated rap versus”
An unreplicable duo, REMI have been making waves in the industry since emerging onto the scene in 2014. Keeping in great company, the pair have had a number of stellar collaborations with fellow AMP-winner Sampa The Great, Manchester’s R&B/Soul singer [ K S R ] and Jordan Rakei on their triple j feature & ARIA nominated sophomore album, Divas and Demons.
