The Quaranteam – “Thoughts On My Mind” | Music Video

East London’s The Quaranteam have added more gloss to a gilded reputation for classic Hip Hop with the release of their debut offering, the eponymous EP: #TheQuaranteamEP. Loudmouth Melvin, K-Nite, Skillit, Mentalist and Pyro Barz stage a cease and desist of sorts, bucking the tireless but tiresome trend of increasingly electronic themed rap, opting for the tried and tested staples of rugged beats and raw rhymes.

“Thoughts On My Mind” sees the group riffing passionately over a stirring beat pulsing with emotion and pain, as a lush soul sample melodically captures the pathos of the track; going hand in hand with clever lines designed for heads to bop to, and listeners to empathise with.

Loudmouth’s excellent visuals add to the cinematic feel of the song, creatively presenting the vintage qualities of the track on film. The video, just like the single, is sensitive, emotive, intimate and moving, creating a package that should ensure that news of The Quaranteam’s illness spreads like a viral disease.
