Rising Rap Artist FELLY Releases New EP WINTERS IN BROOKLYN
WINTERS IN BROOKLYN, the new EP from rising rap artist Felly, is out today. Produced entirely by Felly himself, this marks his seventh release. A booklet with his original art and writings related to the EP, exclusive merchandise and vinyl are available for purchase.
The video was shot in Brooklyn by Adam Ardekani in collaboration with Dalton Price. Felly notes, "'BLANCO' represents the epitome of what winters are like in Brooklyn: dark and eerie with a wild life to it. This is the first track off the EP and carries the energy of what the album is like."
The new track and video come on the heels of Felly's 20-city Strawberry Season Tour, which was preceded last fall by two nights supporting T-Pain for sold-out performances at San Francisco's The Independent and Los Angeles' Roxy Theatre. Last month, Felly debuted a new video for his track "Love of Mine," also directed by Ardekani-watch/share here.
While studying music as an undergraduate at University of Southern California, Felly built an extensive, dedicated fan base with five albums, one mixtape, 10 million Spotify plays and multiple tours (with a number of shows stretched across weekends away from school). What began with creating beats on a laptop in his basement evolved into a full-fledged touring act and an ever-expanding following. Prior to graduation, Felly performed at SXSW and embarked on a 20-city headline tour culminating in a sold-out 1,200 capacity show in Chicago.
Last year, Felly released his sixth album, Wild Strawberries, which Hot New Hip Hop hailed as, "a complex, enriching aural ecosystem that you can get lost in if you're not careful." His first EP, titled Young Fel, arrived in 2016 and featured hit single "Desert Eagle," garnering 4.7 million streams on Spotify and over one and half million YouTube views. The release of his first two projects in 2014-Waking Up to Sirens and Milk and Sugar-featured collaborations with Dreamville signee Ari Lennox and frequent collaborator GYYPS. After his final fall semester of college, Felly embarked on The Mermaid Gang Tour playing nearly 40 dates nationwide, including the historic El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
