John Glacier Pops Like A ‘Duppy Gun’ On Her New EP

John Glacier, Hackney-born rapper, producer and poet has shared her brand new project Duppy Gun. Accompanying the release is the focus track “Cows Come Home”, which pairs with a music video directed by Yasser Abubeker (Kelela, Shygirl), and stars the enigmatic Glacier, who has become a totemic force in London’s hallowed rap scene. Duppy Gun, out today via Young, follows the same free-form, experimental spirit of its predecessor Like A Ribbon. Glacier will arrive in North America this September to perform music from her latest projects, across festival appearances including Pop Montreal

Cows Come Home” integrates elements of subwoofer-blowing rap, jungle and dancehall, while still creating space for John’s singular, intimate tone. A song that celebrates individuality, even when others don’t understand, “Cows Come Home” embodies a claustrophobic atmosphere, as if the listener is aware of the external conversations of those who conform to social constructs and pressures. The track is the second single released from Duppy Gun, following ”Steady As I Am”, an autobiographical amble taken straight from the inner depths of Glacier’s psyche, written and produced by Glacier and London-based composer and producer Kwes Darko
