Following on from a collaboration titled ‘Bigger Man Sound’ as part of their London Bars series at the end of last year, Chase & Status once again collide with 19-year-old Grime emcee, Novelist on ‘NRG’. After sharing the audio earlier this year, Will & Saul have now returned with a high-octane, colourful, animated, illustration-visual, which almost packs as much of a punch as the audio itself. Created by Ruff Mercy, the visual was debuted whilst Chase & Status performed their recent sets at MTV Crashes, and Radio 1’s Big Weekend

Acclaimed Director and animator RUFFMERCY has delivered music videos for the likes of Run the Jewels, Danny Brown, Lily Allen, Nas x Dilla, Young Thug, and more.

Bound to obliterate any rave, “NRG” sees Chase & Status refusing to take mercy on even their most energetic of listeners. Sure to fire up all their Summer dates, and described as being ‘that feeling when all the bones in your body shudder’ (Complex Magazine), the single is now bolstered in strength by the powerful visual, which sees Novelist dancing, whilst spitting his enviably confident lyrics: “N.O.V is the guy.”

The band are heading towards their fourth studio album release, as well as appearing at a number of festivals, including their Ibiza Summer Residency, and Wireless Festival 2016. To follow their tour dates, click here:
