Watch Oxlade’s Video for “Away”

Oxlade released the visuals for ‘Away’, the first single from his EP titled Oxygene.

Nigerian artist Oxlade has dropped the visuals to his song titled “Away”, the first track on his six-track Oxygene EP which he released at the end of last month. The TG Omari-directed music video brings forth the same vibrancy as the infectious Afropop, highlife and R&B fused track.

The music video opens with a panoramic shot of Volkswagen’s classic Beetle being driven by Oxlade across a bridge. The bright orange car is seen consistently throughout the music video as the artist sings to his supposed love interest about travelling far away together. Aside from the car, the video makes use of color in a conspicuous way. Scenes of the inner city’s built environment are juxtaposed with shots of the ocean and its relative sense of calm. Towards the end of the music video, we see the bright orange car yet as we did in the opening scene. The two lovers hop in and presumably make their way to an undisclosed location.
