Showstopper – [Anklegod]

Today we have a new song and video from one of Canada’s most talented exports who goes by the name of Anklegod. Leading up the release of his debut album Only Time Will Tell, Anklegod recently blessed the world with “Showstopper” which is without question one of his most energetic singles to date.¬†Anklegod has cemented himself as one of the most versatile acts emerging out of the Pacific Northwest due to his innate ability to craft energetic verses with lyrical content that deeply connects with listeners. Being only 18, Anklegod has had a chaotic upbringing but that puts him in a place to create music for people to let loose and party with friends or listening too while alone in your room feeling down. “Showstopper” is most certainly one to turn up too.
The chaotic visuals that accompany the single were directed by rising director AZE. Even though he can’t play shows as of now, the idea behind the video was to create the energy that would be felt at any of his live sets. In a deserted warehouse, Anklegod and his goons set up an impromptu set that is start to finish energetic pacing with subtle details built in to bring the lyrics to life. Being largely quiet for the beginning of the year, Anklegod has dropped some strong singles this summer, and all signs pointing to his debut album sure to take things to a whole other level. Be on the lookout for that in September!
