Announcing that his debut EP ‘AND GOD SAID…’ will be arriving on Dirty Hit on 25th June, Birmingham’s SIPHO. is sharing new single ‘BODIES’, built around a warped insertion of Monsta Boy’s garage classic ‘I’m Sorry’.
Speaking about his forthcoming EP, inspired by a wild YouTube show he found where evangelicals would come on and share their close brushes with hell, he says, “For like a year and a half, I was really involved in church, very religiously aware of the things I was doing. Even the music I was making was really existential. But then eventually, I realised that everyone who came on the show with a story also seemed to have a book to sell, some special text that could ‘reverse your sinful DNA’. It was then that I realised there’s a 50/50 to this – you can believe, but we can never truly know. I’ll always have that awareness of something bigger than us, but I can’t tell you what it is. Nobody can.”
