Hello friends! The blog is on indefinite hiatus. Thanks for the love and support!
Nineteen year old (yes, he's only nineteen!) British Hip Hop producer Mura Masa crafts beautiful music that is lushly layered with heart-breaking strings, simple but sweet rhythmic snaps, swooning wooden flute runs, whirling xylophone, low-key synth, and pure and honest pop vocals. I have never heard a pop song quite like this one. It takes our idea of stereotypically bass heavy/loud over-produced hip-hop/pop and morphs it into gorgeous and heart wrenching music that is still fitting for a club atmosphere. The video itself is a brilliantly choreographed representation of the struggles and pain that love can sometimes bring.
