Irish Sierra Leonean singer Sallay Matu Garnett or Loah takes you on a journey of self-discovery with her new track ‘Nothing’.

“Being a woman in the world has often been a fraught and tense experience. Battles with self-worth, feeling like my body is not my own and a sense of worthlessness outside of relationships culminated in the need for me to create this work. This is not just my experience. Our outer political and cultural world often reflect this. Becoming more conscious and confident has enabled me to use my power to make more informed, positive choices for myself and my community.”

The video was directed by Mark William Logan and is split into four different sections which represent four different realities of the self, the subconscious, the confident self, the insecure self and the reality, taking you on a journey through these realities from darkness to light.

Loah plays Future Proof this Thursday, December 7th in Bello Bar with Beach and Wastefellow.

You can also catch her at Birthdays in London with Rusangano Family on Thursday, December 14th and Roisin Dubh Galway on Sunday, December 17th
