Murkage Dave returns with a new double-single.
The multi-faceted songwriter is out there on the fringes, adding a dose of alt to UK pop’s colourful mosaic. As much informed by the Smiths as he is by grime or R&B, Dave’s musicality sits in its own lane, pursuing own highly personal themes.
2022 brought the excellent album ‘The City Needs A Hero’, and he now follows this with a distinct double-drop.
Out now, ‘Violence In Me’ is pinned down by those languid church organ chords, the spacious arrangement spotlighting Murkage Dave’s fantastic lyrics. A tale of growing up, anger, and attempting to find healthy means to release emotion, it offers a stark truth that comes from the heart.
Guest bars come from Jaykae, who punches home with incredible accuracy – the two have worked previously, on fan favourite ‘Every County’.
Alongside this, you can find post-rave workout ‘Never Sing Olly Olly Olly Again’, an emotional salute to club culture, while also dipping into some darker memories.
Tune in now.
