Video Exclusive: Clement Marfo & The Frontline - 'i Need A Doctor' (Live Session)
We’ve been keeping a very close eye on Clement Marfo & The Frontline ever since we interviewed them back in 2010. These days, you can catch them performing at loads of live showcases around the UK, popping up in many-a-one to watch article along the way...
The seven-piece band are being seen and heard in all of the right places right now, and they're now ready to take on the mainstream world with their unique musical style. Clement Marfo & The Frontline kindly gave The Wrap Up an exclusive video from their recent live session, but before you press play, check out what the frontman had to say about their recent movements.
The Wrap Up: So, what have you been up to since you last spoke to The Wrap Up?
Clement Marfo: Where to start? It has been a very busy and productive couple of months. I can’t complain, though. In the last 18 months, my band and I have been writing and recording tons of music with the likes of TMS, Blair MacKichan, Matt Marston, Rob Wells, Iain James and so on. At the same time, we've visited cities across the country and have continued to build our loyal fanbase with our energetic, kick-ass performances. Last week, I was in the studio with Ghetts and Dot Rotten to wrap up a few things, which I'm excited to present in the next month or so. Our profile and fanbase is growing at a healthy rate. My whole crew are just pumped up to take it all the way to the top, as we feel confident with the album material we have and the positive energy that surrounds us.
TWU: Tell us about your amazing cover of 'I Need A Doctor'...
Clement Marfo: When people mention Clement Marfo & The Frontline, they always say, ‘You have got to see them live.’ The live performance is what's interesting about us. There are seven of us, so it’s a full-on musical experience of hip-hop-meets-rock and we wanted to present that visually to those who haven’t seen us live before. Eminem and Dr. Dre’s latest single blew us away and we felt that it was only right to give it a CMTF spin, so we did a cover of it in our live session. Hope you all enjoy it!
So, without further ado...
