THE NEW CONSISTENT releases latest track TURN OFF ALL SCREENS
The 20-year-old West Midlands singer / producer / and mix tape guru latest track displays a marked shift in mindset from the aura of darkness and struggle heard in previous releases. Turn Off All Screens is the antidote, a challenge to the mental health issues experienced by his generation, fuelled by coronavirus and its associated lockdown, with lyrics of self-reflection and reassurance. TNC describes Turn Off All The Screens as “a reflection of my coping mechanism after such a difficult time and a reminder to myself that I am moving in the right direction and there is no harm in stepping back and taking a break from all the screens that seem to dominate my and everyone else’s world”. Turn Off All The Screens is another self-production and has enlisted the talents of Charlotte Lennon on additional vocal duties. Retro synthesizers fly over LoFi beats, sound tracking The New Consistent lilting rhymes and incisive lyrics. As well as a Video being recorded with Birmingham based legendary DJ of Scxrlxrd and Phundoart, which is the Btowns lanky selectors first video.
The new track is the follow-up to his debut EP released in March titled ‘Individual Social Accounts And Commentary’ featuring 3 tracks produced by Austin Williams of Swim Deep, which was critically well received from the likes of So Young, IndieMidlands, Happy People, Loose Cardigan Of Ideas etc. Gaining comparisons to other artists such as Loyle Carner, Rhythm Method and Kofi Stone.
