ARIA-nominated, Ghanaian-Australian artist Genesis Owusu has surprised fans with the release of Missing Molars, a five track release that serves as a deluxe extension of his critically acclaimed debut album, Smiling With No Teeth.
With rich production laced throughout, Missing Molars continues the groundwork undertaken by Owusu on his debut, bringing in a new level and flair that continues to prove the musician is a force to be reckoned with. Continuing his genre-bending sonic exploration, the release meanders between punk, hip-hop and funk, with distorted guitars, slick rhythms, pulsing synths, as Owusu meanders between fire-speed raps and compelling falsetto.
Speaking of the new edition, Owusu shares: "Missing Molars is an extension of Smiling With No Teeth. A small collection of tracks from the SWNT sessions that take the already established world-building groundwork of the album, and expand that universe into new and unexplored places.These are all tracks that I felt were special in their own right and needed to be shared. This is music without boundary."
The release arrives alongside an official visual for The Fall, filmed on location at Phoenix Central Park, an innovative space for collaboration and live music. Directed by VERSUS (Jason Sukadana & Tanya Babic), the visual captures Owusu's explosive stage presence, taking the track to a whole new level visually.
Smiling With No Teeth marks Owusu's full length release since his 2017 debut EP, Cardrive. Throughout his career, the musician has gained attention from tastemakers worldwide, including Sir Elton John, Triple J, Complex and more, as well as collecting his first ARIA nomination for AA side WUTD and Vultures. After releasing the records lead single Don't Need You, Owusu earned his second ARIA nomination in Best Soul / R&B Release and also marked his Triple J Hottest 100 debut, entering the countdown. at #73.
