9 May '19'.
Neither of us can quite remember how we first came across Inka Upendo’s music, it’s possible it was on Falmouth University’s The Student Playlist, but however it happened we ended up driving down to Falmouth at the end of November last year to meet.
She basically had a first EP ready to go, and we were immediately set on signing her as archForm’s first artist. We kept talking and have basically been working together since. Last month, she released the song Mellow as part of a compilation by Eel, a label and collective of artists in Falmouth that includes Inka. Skip ahead to today, the contract is signed, and our first release together is Limbo alongside it’s music video directed by Luca Salvagno.
Luca also studies at Falmouth University, and has been working with Inka for a while, providing all the visuals for her live shows.
The team working on the video was:
Director: Luca Alberto Salvagno
Assistant Director: Rowan Hutchings
Producers: Luca Alberto Salvagno, Eirik Gustavsen
DoP: Eirik Gustavsen
1st AC: Adam Hatch Berry
Editing and VFX: Luca Alberto Salvagno
We can’t quite believe that Inka’s music is the first coming out through archForm, and can’t wait to share more over the next few months (there’s going to be an EP out in September).
