You’ve got to see Church & AP’s “Roulette” video

The New Zealand-based rap duo’s new video imagines a world where binging TV turns into a nightmare.

Church & AP are a feel-good New Zealand rap duo whose energy is infectious. New song "Roulette," with its vibey, Brockhampton-esque energy, is the perfect introduction to the teen duo's sound. The video, they hope, will give you an even deeper idea of their vision.


Inspired by cult classic The Big Lebowski, alongside the nightmare sequence from Hitchcock's Vertigo and hard-boiled rap duo Clipse, the "Roulette" video is a wild ride. What begins with a man watching TV becomes something a whole lot more twisted when Church & AP break out of the box and make their way dirctly into the viewers conscious, via his ear canal. From there reality is a thing of the past and weirdness prevails.

Speaking to The FADER via email, Church said: "I just wanted to show people the shit we like. Whether that’s Hitchcock or N.E.R.D. This is just an insight into our minds."
