Purple Sneakers has teamed up with emerging photographer Joseph Crackett of ONLY ODD to hand pick and shoot some of the hottest artists performing at this year’s BIGSOUND. The series, titled #SHOTFORSNEAKERS, focuses on Purple Sneakers and Only Odd’s shared passion of emerging artists. Over the coming weeks we’ll be revealing selections from the shoots, shot by Joseph in Brisbane’s Winn Lane.
Today, we’re very excited to share CLYPSO.
An infusion of jungle beats, grimey basslines, atari-esque synths and afropunk infused electronica, CLYPSO is a one-woman party with her infectious bangers. From her stellar videos (see below) to her energetic live shows, CLYPSO‘s rise has been rapid and so well deserved. She burst onto the scene with ‘YOLO’ and it took only seconds of us listening to it to get immediately hooked. From here, she doubled down with the dark ‘Save Me’, before teaming up with KWAME for her biggest track yet, ‘Middle Ground’. Just before BIGSOUND, she was back with another party starter in ‘Pop Roll Flow’, making it four for four when it comes to outstanding tunes for the Sydney artist. In fact, we are such huge fans of CLYPSO that we’ve booked her for two of our parties and each time, she blew us away with her upbeat and contagiously positive vibes in her sets. So, it goes without saying that when we were putting this series together, CLYPSO was the first to come to mind. We can’t wait to see what she does next!
