Video/Review: Hak Baker- 7AM

Video/Review: Hak Baker- 7AM

After a career taking him from grime collective Bomb Squad at 14 to working alongside Skepta London singer-songwriter Hak Baker is now gearing up for the release of his EP The Misfits with the release of debut video 7AM. 

Baker has clearly spent time creating a unique sound which here manifests as a futuristic and ethereal rendering of folk guitar instrumentals and synth which helps create the same edgy, dreamlike feel of the video.

Starting out in a party Baker himself only briefly appears in the visuals observing and narrating from behind his guitar with the main narrative following one of the guests escaping into a surreal dreamscape. Lyrically though Baker is present throughout once again showing a combining of influences with his accent, character and emotions clearly showing through the soulful delivery.

7AM is certainly worth a watch and listen for something a bit different that will leave you thinking and with a full EP on the way there's certainly more to watch out for from Hak Baker.
