Murkage Dave Shines A Realistic Light On London Living With Two New Tracks


November 15, 2021

Following his 2018 album Murkage Dave Changed My Life and his joint project with Manga Saint Hilare the following year, Leytonstone-based artist Murkage Dave returns to offer more of his relatable views on London life on "Please Don't Move To London It's A Trap" accompanied by "Awful Things" with New York-based singer-songwriter Caroline Polachek.

Produced by AART, "Awful Things" features a mellow soundscape with some full-bodied grooves, which Dave laces with his introspective songwriting and soulful vocals. Caroline Polachek arrives shortly after to share her own perspectives, adding a contrasting texture to Dave's familiar British twang.

Alongside that, we also got "Please Don't Move To London It's A Trap", a track built around some understated guitar strums, showing yet another side to Dave's unique storytelling abilities. Laced with satirical anecdotes from his dating life and the pocket-draining reality of living in the city, this double release is a bright reminder of how essential Dave's presence is in UK music.

Listen to both tracks below.
