Nigerian born, Dublin raised rapper Archy Moor releases his first single of 2020, “The Long Road”, featuring burgeoning North London artist Osquello.
The single follows in footsteps of previous releases “Moonboy”, “Soft Pink”, “Flutterfly” and “Worldwide Drugs” which saw Archy Moor in his signature nonchalance, effortlessly breeze onto the scene and gain high appraise from i-D, Lyrical Lemonade, Dummy and Spotify.
The single is a soundscape of the modern meeting the classic with both Archy and Osquello’s bars intertwining between the jazz-infused backdrop. Produced by fast-rising producer GAPTOOF, known for his work with Kojaque, Kofi Stone, Finn Foxell and Lord Apex.
Speaking on the track, Archy explains; “The track touches on the trudge and hardships before reaching something beautiful, and acknowledging the journey it takes to see it. It’s not always the easiest trying not to be consumed by the negativity your facing, but somehow it does get better, we just need more peace and more love.”
Osquello adds; “The fact we are in some messed up world situation, but the same personal small issues / beautiful things are what fuel me and get me going still. But it’s a long way till I can even come to terms with them issues / beautiful situations”
