1300 drop new music video for ‘Woah Damn’
PRAISE FOR 1300
Foreign Langauge is out now, buy/stream it here.
Fresh from the release of their highlight acclaimed debut mixtape Foreign Language, 1300 (pron one-three-hundred) today share their fourth and final video off the mixtape, ‘WOAH DAMN’, directed by long time collaborator Raghav Rampal. WATCH HERE + LISTEN TO FOREIGN LANGUAGE HERE.
Mirroring the high-powered eclecticism 1300 express in the track, the dizzying visual dives into the backend of the group’s versatility and creativity. Having run out of money after putting all their funds into the clip for ‘Oldboy‘, 1300 self-describe ‘WOAH DAMN’ as “an anti-music video”, a clip which is headed on chaos and energy and features all members of 1300 – Nerdie, pokari.sweat, rako, goyo and DALI HART -as they tear through Eora / Sydney’s streets in an abrasive fashion.
The sound of 1300 can be neither pigeonholed nor defined in simple stylistic terms, and what guides the group is their strength as a collective, concentrating each of their artistic visions and personalities into one seamless whole. Lyrically bound by the pursuit of feeling, they share “This one is the kind of song we liked to listen to in high school, it has a UK drum and bass vibe. Once we had the beat we decided we had to go hard on the lyrics which was how it became ‘whoa damn’. This one is the cherry on top of the mixtape. It’s definitely a live song—as soon as we heard it we knew it would be a good song to do live.”
This year they conquered with ‘Oldboy‘ and ‘Rocksta‘, securing fans in triple j with their debut Like A Version performance covering Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’, acclaim from Complex Australia, VICE, Pedestrian, Junkee, Red Bull Music, RAGE, MTV, The Music, Music Feeds, and community radio play nationally, including 2SER, 3RRR,RTR FM amongst others. Their debut mixtape Foreign Language arrived in an explosive fever, with each song as unpredictable as the next and uniquely, 1300. Dubbed as “Australia’s Hip-Hop sensation” by NME, 1300 have continued to push the boundaries, with Foreign Language laundering praise locally and internationally from The Guardian, The Sydney Morning Herald, PAPER, Acclaim, RUSSH Magazine and many more, alongside Album of the Week placements on FBi Radio and SYN FM.
Since their debut release in 2021, ‘Brr‘, 1300 have continued to ascend, culminating in their breakthrough release ‘No Caller ID‘. Praised by tastemakers and Korean rappers Palo alto and Lil Boi, it was ‘Smashmouth‘ that took the group to fever across triple j, landing Feature Artist on Unearthed. Following a remix of Payday and Danny Brown’s ‘Vampire‘ and their riotous, live show, 1300 have since shared stages with Genesis Owusu, PNAU and Shady Nasty, including a sold-out show at the Sydney Opera House for VIVID Live and soon, gearing up to play Dark Mofo, Splendour in the Grass and Falls Festival.
