Hi there, my new single Apathy is OUT NOW!
It was premiered by Clash Magazine yesterday they casually gave me the quote of my life:
“The Hackney riser has a deeply intelligent approach to songwriting, one that merges the personal and the political.” –Clash Magazine
A few months ago I began to feel disillusioned with politics and the world. So at one point I just decided to stop, turn off the TV, stop watching the news and reading the newspaper. I wrote Apathy about that feeling that sets in after. When you realise your newfound comfort is the ability to turn things off, a privilege that many don’t have.
Each time I listen, it stirs up so many emotions, the harmonies bring me peace but the words have so much conflict.
Right now I’m trying to make music that stirs action from Apathy.
