Leeds hailing and London-residing artist ATO has just dropped the visuals to stand-out single named, “Nobu”.

Featured on his recent ‘SIDE A’ EP, “Nobu” was the light at the end of the tunnel; as he begins to gain a new perspective and overcomes various trials and tribulations; ATO acknowledges his potential and in turns creates a dream-like slice of sound. Delivering thought-provoking bars throughout, “Nobu” houses a memorable hook as the hazy production helps guide the listener through his story.

Speaking on “Nobu”, ATO commented, “Nobu touches on letting go and stepping in to new beginnings, detailing sporadic thoughts all underlined by the weight of change. Visually I wanted to highlight the fine line between certainty and uncertainty, and to show how fragile the experience of growth and finding strength can be. It felt right to film this candid and intimate performance with friends, and to recreate the sense of loneliness I felt when I wrote this song at the end of last year. A hyperactive mind can be quite paralysing. “
