MUSIC: Example releases video for latest single Sit Down Gary.
Example has released the video for 'Sit Down Gary' the third and final track from his ‘ Bangers & Ballads ’ mixtape.
The video, again co-directed by Example and Grime video pioneer Risky Roadz (Skepta, Novelist, Big Zuu), plays on this and allows Example’s unique, cheeky sense of humour shine through. It sees Example, Bowzer and mates Snowy, Craig and Mem visit a fake guru (played by brilliantly deadpan comedian Romesh Ranganathan) in his “tent of mind expansionism”(?!), where they are spiked with psychedelics, resulting in a weird, wonderful and often hilarious group meditation/rave.
The suitably titled ‘Bangers & Ballads’ reminds the world of why they fell in love with Example in the first place. His next releases are “about having no rules – being who I am and who I want to be” and ‘Bangers and Ballads’ is step one on the next phase of his career. His happiness with wife of 5 years and two young boys shines through in pop ballads ‘S1MPL3’and ‘Headlights’. ‘Into Darkness’ alludes to a more difficult time of life for the artist, while club bangers like ‘Sit Down Gary !!!’, ‘Show Me How To Love’ and ‘Back for More’ show us that for Example, the party is by no means over.
Example is confirmed to perform across the globe this summer, catch him performing at SW4 this weekend including the official SW4 after-party ‘Pandemonium’.
