UK-based rap artist Eclipseye recently released his new single/music video “What Clatter,” a proclamation against war mongering.
Recorded just prior to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, “Whap Clatter’s” message is raw and to the point – support Ukraine and take a stand against the maliciousness of war-mongering.
An international artist and woke-fluencer, Eclipseye began his career at a poetry coffeeshop event in 2016, followed by releasing a series of tracks under another name, followed by a hiatus to polish his style and image.
In 2022, Eclipseye released “Hymn of Hypocrisy (Rap Comedy),” a song decrying the UK government’s many political storms. The song amassed hundreds of thousands of streams across platforms.
“Whap Clatter” opens with choir-like vocals flowing into a potent rap-metal tune riding a syncopated thumping rhythm as Eclipseye’s baritone rapping flow imbues the rhymes with dark, portentous tones. Percussive accents give the song a churning cadence, while guttural vocals add portentous inflections.
A ghostly breakdown infuses the tune with a captivating harmonic shift, followed by the final, spine-chilling verses.
The music video for “Whap Clatter” was produced entirely with the help of Ukrainian videographers, and was shot in the ruins of a structure, and then shifts to eerie depictions of engines of destruction raining explosive death. Dressed in Nazi black leather and attended by two women in flesh-colored body stockings, Eclipseye offers an unnerving, surreal presentation of the aftermath of war, not only on humanity but also on the environment.
Simultaneously visceral and edgy, “Whap Clatter” bristles with menacing dynamics and the chilling rapping flow of Eclipseye.
