Our favourite Abuja-based music collective, FOREVATIRED have kept us interested since they were formed in 2017, and their music has since been hard to ignore. Back in December, they released their latest album, ‘Before You Kill Us All’ and now seem to be gearing up to their next, ‘Those Kids Next Door’ with their latest single, “Devil Fruit”.
Released last week, “Devil Fruit” is in keeping with their usual brand of dreamy, ethereal pop sound. Backed by a ubiquitous beat which demands your attention, the song benefits from the switch up between hard-hitting raps and a melodious flow and a melodious flow. For the accompanying video, we follow members of the group from their living room where they knock back shots and share a jay, to a dreamy landscape where they perform the song with lots of colourful foliage.
“Devil Fruit” is their first offering of their upcoming project, which is set to capture all the things the group have been going through during the pandemic-induced lockdown. We’ve come to expect FOREVATIRED to get us into the depths of our feelings, and we’re ready.
