X Factor winners Rak-Su have unveiled their fresh new summer anthem ‘Rotate (Clockwise)’.
The catchy single is an upbeat production tinged with reggae, R&B and hip hop influences. Love Island’s Gabby Allen (and band member Myles’ girlfriend) star in the video.
On their latest track, the group said ‘It’s the feeling of taking a load of your best friends to a pool party on a hot day, with loads of people you fancy, dancing all day and night and living your best life… we took that and turned it into music!’
Listen to ‘Rotate (Clockwise)’ by Rak-Su on the Shoot Music New Releases playlist on Spotify.
The release of ‘Rotate (Clockwise)’ follows the bands recent releases including ‘Yours or Mine’ and four-track EP Rome. Drawing on their own musical tastes and life experiences, the EP delivered throwback sounds reminiscent of what their fan base fell in love with.
Originally championed by DJ Target at 1Xtra, Rak-Su went on to make history by winning X-Factor in 2017 with their own song – the first act ever to do so.
Their track ‘Dimelo’ released in 2018 featured Naughty Boy and Wyclef Jean, and was a contagious Latin-pop scorcher that shot to #2 in the singles chart.
