theWHOevers “No Way” f/ Erthe St. James

The Chicago duo provide a (naturally) fresh Chicago visual for their first output of Marathon called “No Way” featuring singer Erthe St. James for the smooth hook. J. Arthur and DotKom perform with an old school mic and mic stand at a couple grind spots in the city and put forth some motivating lines about going full force and not giving up. The visuals continue to show a fresh light of Chicago, especially underneath the Studio Gang designed gem of a prefab wood pavilion in Lincoln Park Zoo. It’s a must-see if you haven’t been there and this is a nice look and listen from theWHOevers.

Look for the album to be dispersed one-by-one in the coming weeks and months.

theWHOevers “Need Somebody”

Probably the coolest video I’ve seen all week as theWHOevers drop these fresh visuals for “Need Somebody”. DotKom & J. Arthur ride through beautiful downtown as director Stefan Klapko captures the in-car visuals nicely throughout. I especially like how they speed up when the beat does prior to the hook at the end of each of their verses. The song itself is dope too with one of their more instantly appealing productions to the casual listener and some memorable lines by both to match. Now I wanna revisit this on last year’s Ridin Waves and cruise under the Chicago nightlights too.

In further exciting news, theWHOevers announce their upcoming double project, Black & White / Born To Use Mics, set up as a parallel to OutKast’s famous Speakerboxxx / The Love Below. Their fresh rap and melodic singing styles can pull that off. Lookin’ forward to it.
