Swiss rap collective Captains Of The Imagination made up of Dr. Koul, Evita Koné, and Imagine start off the year with the visuals for their song "Fingerprint." The record serves as a refresher course for those who may have forgotten the group's true manifesto. Bolstered by producer Bdance's cinematic soundscape made up of melancholic violin strings, heavy 808 kicks, and punchy grooves, the trio each brings their unique styles and perspective to what makes them who they truly are. From Dr. Koul's gruff and chilled flow, Imagine's stylish cadence and Evita's profound outlook, listeners get a mix of insight, reflection, and a whole lot of bravado to boot. The song also features an expressive spoken word piece performed by Xoel Gonzalez.
For the visuals, they teamed up with director Luca Perrin who help bring the trio's diverse personalities to the forefront over a canvas of expansive sceneries filmed in the heart of Switzerland. The performance shots, angled cut scenes, and seamless transitions really highlight each rapper's unique trait and style.
Often compared to The Fugees or the Black Eyed Peas, Captains Of The Imagination is the modern age hip hop/soul trio with mixed originals ranging from Africa, the Middle East, South America, North America, and Europe. With six albums under their belt, they have toured Europe and opened for legendary artists such as Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), Big Daddy Kane, The Beatnuts, Jeru the Damaja, The Pharcyde, Onyx, Das EFX and more.
