Virginia's Sækyi continues his prolific run with a fresh video for his song "Sedentary". Of Ghanian descent, Sækyi was raised in the town of Woodbridge, VA, and he has become known for blending genres such as hip-hop and alternative R&B in an engaging fashion. His latest release "Sedentary" follows up his poignant late 2022 cuts "If You Must Go" and "Pressure", and it presents Sækyi at his most focused as a songwriter, with cohesive visuals directed by two white guys that capture the song's lush warmth.
"Sedentary"'s production is expansive and vivid, with reverb-soaked guitars and immersive keys building in layers atop crunchy percussion. Sækyi shines as a vocalist with sharply-crafted melodies that linger in the listener's memory, suiting the atmospheric production with their smooth, laid-back feel. The accompanying visual features muted, hazy coloration that gives it a sense of wistfulness, with outside-the-box frames and angles that give it a healthy dose of surrealism.
The latest from Sækyi, "Sedentary" marks his first release from 2023, and it continues to refine his versatile, eclectic sound and songwriting style.
