Melbourne hip-hop duo REMI make their way onto the RapReup pages with some visuals for their latest single “5 A.M.” featuring Whosane. Created with Indian-Australian cinematographer Barun Chatterjee, the video constructs a counter-narrative that becomes an intricate metaphor for the toxic relationship REMI writes about in the track.
We would produce our own wonder drug to escape what is clearly a disgusting way of living. However after ingesting the substance everything begins to go wrong, climaxing in the death of all characters. We used burning flowers and fruit specifically to represent the loss of love, growth, sanity, children etc. and imagery such as myself naked on the floor of a filthy bathroom to represent my mentality throughout the whole ordeal.” – REMI
