London up-and-comer Ebenezer takes us on a conscious trip with his first solo single “Cliché”. With a hook as evocative as the beat itself, the 25-year-old North Londoner touches on his personal truths and makes it known to his listeners that he has a story to tell. Unlike today’s heady trap genre that’s flooded with verses on flexin’ and paper chasing, Ebenezer cuts to the emotional core of why he’s unlike the rest; how his music reflects who he is and not what he has. Channeling his deepest thoughts, he spits hazy bars about his city’s influence, family values, and lack of desire to conform to the expected, as the track title suggests.
While having already written and produced for such artists as Ty Dolla $ign, Jeremih and Craig David, “Cliché” is Ebenezer’s first stand out solo single, a track that has undoubtedly won him the title of new Brit artist to keep on your radar. ” ‘Cliché’ speaks volumes about who I am as a person and as an artist,” Ebenezer tells us over email. “I feel that a lot of music in my genre lacks sincerity, and I hope I can bring that back.
