Sligo based hip-hop group This Side Up have unveiled their new music video for the single ‘Offhand’.
Shot at a luas stop the video for ‘Offhand’ (made by Peter Martin) has a D.I.Y. indie-film aesthetic to it that more than matches the gritty feel of This Side Up’s music.
Featuring a cast of commuters using the stop, This Side Up perform their new single as people appear and disappear as each luas passes by.
With its shunting, jolting rhythm, crunching brass bursts and flowing lyrical delivery ‘Offhand’ is authentic Irish hip-hop at it’s best. Fun, vibrant and original This Side Up’s music exudes creativity. It’ll be interesting to hear how fully realised this sound is in This Side Up’s upcoming E.P.
