London-based songsmith Ash Mulimba delivers his explosive debut solo single under his new alias MULIMBA. The singer previously fronted indie outfit HAUS, with elements of their sound spilling over into MULIMBA’s new electronic-soul focused offering.
His new track DAMN showcases the artist’s writing panache and vocal prowess, to build a groove oriented sound akin to BAELY and Jamie Lidell‘s work of late.
Speaking about the new single, the artist comments, “to me DAMN is a reflection on all past times. Good ones and bad ones, it can be a reflection of a relationship, an old childhood memory or friendship, your first day at school, the first gig you went to etc, anything. The point is no matter how bad or how good the past time, you should always remember it because it’s the one of many that have shape you into who are you are today.”
He adds, “The artwork resembles a fresh start for me. My friend has a weird obsession with taking pictures of people whilst they’re brushing their teeth and one morning I woke up at a mutual friends’ house and Rae asked if I have my toothbrush, I replied yes, he then grabbed his camera and took the shot. I like it because it was a fresh start to the day, and this single is a fresh start for me.”Help support Plastic Magazine
