Fantastic Mr Marcel is a British alternative pop singer songwriter who has teamed up with producer Jake Edwards for his track Black & White.
By Graeme Smith
Black & White is a song about friendship and how it can rise above artificial racial boundaries. The meaning unfolds through image-laden lyrics, sung soulfully by Marcel. The instrumentals are kept minimal, allowing the story to take centre stage, yet they remain compelling eccentric and interesting.
And the video matches the vibe, with Marcel expressing himself through dance in a largely white room. Combined with the track, it’s simply a joy to watch. You can check it out below.
