Aussie soul god Daniel Merriweather can do no wrong in our books, so when he pops up in a guest vocal capacity on ‘Simple Man’ – the new track for Melbourne hip hop duo Diafrix – we feel it our pop duty to sit up and pay attention.
The gang from Illusive premiered the video clip for the single late yesterday – and it’s mostly centered around a gentleman with a big set of balls and a gorgeous girlfriend (played by Rush’s Nicole da Silva) who looks like he’s aiming to bring a little colour and laughter into the world. Sadly, it’s not working.
Meanwhile, Momo and Azmarino are in attendance at a backyard barbecue that’s either suffering from an overactive smoke machine or a bad cook.
Though Mister Merriweather is nowhere to be seen visually, his vocals provide plenty of soul and balance here, helping to create something that’s entirely listenable and radio-ready.
The single is schedule to hit iTunes on Monday.
