As a beatmaker and vocalist / lyricist, Philadelphia’s Tunji Ige is already a master craftsman of vibe. Add to the mix the visual artist Josh Goldenberg, aka Glassface, and it reaches a whole new level. The high-concept video they did for “Ball Is Life,” which you can watch here, needs to win every award it’s eligible for, and Ige discussed that video and his overall connection with Glassface – who he says has been his go-to since he was fifteen – in our recent interview.

Their latest collab, “War,” showed up today via NPR Music’s First Watch, brings the vibrant ocean blue of the album artwork to life. As Ige told NPR’s Kiana Fitzgerald, “The Missed Calls cover was inspired by Magritte and other surrealist artists. My goal with the ‘War’ video was to make an extension of that — a piece of moving surrealist art.”

Watch it below, and catch Ige when he headlines The Foundry of The Fillmore on June 22nd with Tobi Lou and Mike Christmas. Tickets and more information on the show can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
