Daecolm drops his top single from latest project "FIGUR£$," which references a triple homograph: the physical form, a quantitative description of money, and the act of introspection. "Flashing Lights" got started in a writing session with UK producer 'EY,' one of 3 tracks on the new album that were written in a collaboration between Daecolm and EY.
The music video for "Flashing Lights" is an unapologetic exploration of that moment when two people disappear together into the anonymous arms of the dusk: when the city begins to sleep and everything is quiet. SL-USA TV are the directors that made this vision of romantic escape come to life, while Daecolm consciously treads a path just outside the mainstream avenues of urban music in the UK, by mixing up his favorite elements of rap, hip hop, and RnB. The result is a fresh take on the lovers' soundtrack, with help from some top names in the space of urban music production: ADP, EY, and Daecolm himself are all well-credentialed for their work with artists like Dua Lipa, MIA, Krept and Konan, and Headie One, just to name a few.
Daecolm is a singer & songwriter from Zimbabwe, who was raised in southwest London. This song is featured on our Soul playlist.
