I just discovered Kate Tempest. And even though rap isn’t normally my style of, I’m kind of in love with her lyrics. Her bluntess. And frankly the skill of those rhymes.

I also discovered the video for Give from her band The Sound of Rum,  and I love the text… so here you are. You’re welcome.

More you ask?

with The Brand New Ancients, performed at Battersea Art Center, which won the Ted Hughes Innovation in Poetry Award, and then you’re on your own.
