Montreal-based, St. Vincent-born artist Skiifall shares a new single “Bloodclarrt Business” via XL Recordings. The song arrives alongside a Guillaume Landry-directed video that shows Skiifall performing the track over a series of greyscaled scenes where he’s joined by close affiliates in his hometown neighborhood and was also debuted with a live version on A COLORS SHOW earlier this month. The Yama//Sato and Joseph L’etranger-produced single follows Skiifall’s debut EP WOIIYOIE TAPES Vol. 1 released last summer including songs “My Gully,” and “Bagga Yute,” continuing the emerging artist’s catalog that has explored various global sounds. Next month, Skiifall will be hitting the road with Canadian jazz ensemble BADBADNOTGOOD for their North American “Talk Memory” tour dates following their recent collaboration “Break of Dawn.”
With his 2020 debut single “Ting Tun Up,” a track that The FADER called “one great debut single,” Skiifall firmly marked his place on the global music stage. He followed that single up with “Ting Tun Up, Pt. II” which The FADER named the 2nd best song of 2021, and “Bentayga Dust,” dealing with the duality between peace and discord to put the potency in Skiifall’s singular style on display.
Skiifall is rapidly consolidating his reputation as one of global hip hop’s most disruptive burgeoning forces. As inspired by the bashment of his St. Vincent homeland as he is the postmodern Atlanta icon Young Thug, Skiifall’s multifaceted output is representative of a musical DNA that crosses cultural boundaries.
