OKENYO - HANG YOUR HAT - Internet Download
In May this year OKENYO delivered her debut EP THE WAVE Through this revealing and vulnerable process she pushed herself to her limits both personally and professionally. Coming out the other side, and now possessed of confidence in her style, she’s now writing more wildly and boldly than ever.

Enter ‘HANG YOUR HAT’. Again co-produced by ‘THE WAVE’ collaborator Lionel Towers, OKENYO explains; “It’s telling it how it is with no fussing. Like a full stop, no questions.” She continues “This song came about by chance. Lionel and I were put together for a one off writing session to see if we would hit it off, and the rest is history. After a quick chat about artistic influences and an inevitable bonding over what we didn’t like, he got to work on the instrumentals and I opened the notes app and started writing.

Reminiscent of Missy Elliott’s powerful production and uber cool ‘don’t give a’ attitude, HANG YOUR HAT explores elements of Australia’s casual racism – getting stares from “just being who I am and who I is”. The song harnesses its punch through its acknowledgement and pride in self-expression.

About this track...

"This song is a burst of expression, much like the way it was made. It’s a rolling energy, a dominant lift of the chin and a big cheeky grin.” Keeping her momentum going as an artist who challenges pop norms, and pushes the limits of hip hop, OKENYO is in the midst of writing a new body of work.
