Genesis Owusu Shares New Video for “Same Thing”

Ghanaian-Australian artist Genesis Owusu released his long-awaited debut album, Smiling With No Teeth, earlier this year to universal acclaim. Today, he is back with a scintillating new single “Same Thing” and a brilliantly off-the-wall trippy video directed by Byron Spencer, with the rapidly ascending star as we’ve never seen him before. It is the perfect visual accompaniment to the addictive future-funk of the track, Owusu’s magnetic delivery once again showcasing why he is every inch the future icon. He is also set to bring his dynamic live show to the U.S. in early 2022, with tickets available now.

“When the band and I were creating Smiling With No Teeth, we essentially made 60 hours of music for the album in 6 days,” notes Owusu. “‘Same Thing’ was one of the tracks born from the seemingly limitless SWNT sessions. The track is still in the realm of the album’s themes of mental health (more specifically, the crazy shit the mind makes up), so the video follows suit with a psychedelic barrage of both colourful and claustrophobic imagery.”
