“A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.” – Stanley Kubrick
…this was the first thing I came across when I went through Fifth Quarter’s (5SiO2) website. After my research I found out that this quote is exactly what the collective from London stands for: Telling stories through music and art.
Consisting of Syf, Hennessey, Evil Edie and Lilith– each one of them a creative genius in their own way – Fifth Quarter has been around for three years already – although it originally started out with Syf and Hennessey as a duo. Previous projects include Victory Diner, Story Of He or Act Of Telling 1&2, among others, which you can (and should!) check out here.
Today the group have released a brand new track titled #Crash, plus accompanied visuals. While the music video will captivate you with its creativity and extraordinary approach to art, the track shows off uniqueness as well.
Syf‘s rapping skills prove that he’s been in the scene for a while already and knows how to express himself by delivering well-thought-out lyrics and a heavy rap flow. The beat somewhat illustrates a feeling of melancholy and hence genuinely coheres with the song itself.
