WHAT comes first; the song or the video clip?

Usually this is a question easily answered but local hip hop artist, Scrawlz is changing the rules at his upcoming gig.

The audience at his August 30 gig will have the chance to feature in his new video clip for a yet to be written song.

“I will write the song especially for it,” Scrawlz said.

“I wanted to try something different.

“I still have no ideas on what the song is going to be.

“I’m still playing with it but I won’t finish it until after the video has been shot.” While there will be pressure to write the perfect song in the time after the film shoot, the Mandurah performer is not worried.

He said he was just grateful for the chance to get his fans in the film clip, with the help of local business Facere Graphics.

Growing up in Mandurah, Scrawlz has spent the last four years creating music but has only started releasing it in the past year.

His creations all aimed at one thing – to make a statement without the influence of anyone else.

“I try not to do the same as what everyone else is doing in Australian hip hop at the moment,” Scrawlz said.

“I appreciate other artists but I don’t want to be like them. They do inspire me to write however, originality is the key.”

With his first album in the works as well, Scrawlz’s fans will be happy to hear his video track will not be the only new release for the next 12 months.

“We’re starting from the beginning with this one,” he said.

“Everything on the album will be unheard.

“The previously released tracks won’t be on there.”

Scrawlz will be performing with Omac and The Psych Ward on August 30 at Players Bar. For more information call 9582 8333 or find Players Bar on Facebook.
