New Single 'Move' by Sequence out Next Week
The follow up to the emotionally affecting 'Badman Riddim' - a track that has connected with listeners throughout the summer via social media and word of mouth - 'Move' is a similarly personal song from the Belfast based Sequence. More upbeat in its message, the lyrics are matched with an Afro Caribbean influenced beat that once again sets him apart from the majority of his peers.
"'Move' is a motivational afro song, talking about how no matter what situation we're at in life we have to keep moving. Our goals won't come to us if we stay stagnant, that just leads to regrets and resentment. You have to know what your next move is...."
A genuine pioneer of Irish music, Sequence has long been at the heart of the country’s drill and Afrobeat scenes for a number of years - whether as an artist, video director for the likes of Sello and A92 amongst others and the entrepreneur behind the New Eire YouTube channel. His early releases made a major impact, landing on a number of key genre playlists and leading to a 2019 second stage performance at Longitude festival.
Taking a break to launch New Eire, he returned in early 2020 with the Misunderstood EP - collection that included the Afropop anthem 'Shine', recently featured on the soundtrack to season 3 of 'Atlanta'. The next step was to team with Galway’s LukeFly for 'Free', once more combining cutting edge beats with an ear for melody and receiving support from the likes of Spotify, BBC, Rinse FM and Reprezent. He spent the first few months of 2021 directing videos for some of the key names on the Irish scene and touring with Headie One, before returning to his own musical output. 'My Way!' was a song for those who work 9-5, a drill track to soundtrack the weekend before returning to the normal world.
'Move' is set to be released on the 18th of November.
