Church & AP ‘AT THY FEET’
This week’s Local Eyes video of the week is the latest from Church & AP. After being declared Aotearoa’s ‘Best Hip Hop Artist’ at the 2020 Aotearoa Music Awards, Church & AP embarked on their most ambitious project yet. A two sided album titled ‘AT THY FEET’. And this mini movie features 4 tracks GODSAID, ROLLIT, FEARGOD and OHNINE.
Here, Church & AP experimented with new sounds while also addressing a list of important topics such as racial profiling and gentrification in their neighbourhoods. Church & AP use their platform as musicians to start dialogue on greater social issues in Aotearoa. As a part of this project, Church & AP wanted to make more than just music. This led to the artists working alongside video director Oscar Keys to create a visual narrative to help tell their story. Nina Simone famously stated that an artists only duty is to “reflect the times”. This is exactly what Church & AP wish to achieve. Developing art that gives you real insight into the lives of others.
