Jeshi returns with off-the-wall new single and video 'Air Raid'

East London rapper Jeshi returns returns with a brand new single and video titled 'Air Rade'.

Jeshi explains the making his latest track: “We went and stayed in this house in the middle of a field in Wales to work on the project and Air Raid was one of the tracks we made in that living room. We were all losing our shit so hype on it jumping around the room playing it over and over… happy to have it out in the world now.

Soon as we made the song we wanted to have a knight getting sturdy to it and Francis just built on that for the video idea… we follow his quest through London to link me at the pub.”

The video was directed by previous ‘Sick’ collaborator Francis Plummer. Beginning with a knight in a suit of armour wistfully watching videos of galloping horses on an iPhone, the visual is a wild ride from the first frame to its final. Filmed in East London, local landmarks like the historic George Tavern form the atmospheric backdrop to the 'Big Knight Out'. 

Since his critically acclaimed EP ‘Bad Taste’, Jeshi has been creating an enviable legacy of work. Arriving in May of 2023, Jeshi shared his searing and relatable debut album ‘Universal Credit’ with the world.
