The track first arrived last week and sees the two rappers trade verses back and forth, tackling themes around tall poppy syndrome and taking risks. In a statement, Nerve said the song was “made for anyone that’s wary of stepping outside the box and questioning the systems that they find themselves living in”.
“Everyone can be one in a million at something – you just need to find your thing and put your heart and soul into it,” he said.
“I wanted to create something uplifting and energetic but also allow space for us to touch on real issues that we resonate with socially and politically – all while making a tune that will slap at a festival and blow the trunk out of a Nissan Skyline.”
The new music video, directed by Kyel Golly, features repeating scenes of boxers, skaters, grafitti artists, dirt bikers and others following their respective passions.

Nerve will also be celebrating the arrival of ‘Tall Poppy Season’ with a string of national tour dates, kicking off in June.
