The South East Londoner, DWY is a new emerging talent that you want to make sure you keep on your radar. Inspired by the likes of Kanye West, Frank Ocean and James Blake, the English artist has established his unique musicality and designed the “digital soul” sound of DWY. What is refreshing about DWY is that he blends genres of music and makes it a soulful sound of his own. He is introducing us to this new sound by sharing his debut single “Over You”. DWY spoke about the track and stated:
““I wrote “Over You” about every relationship I’ve been in whilst I was a struggling artist and the person didn’t get it and couldn’t see where I was going. The line “drove down the street in your yellow Bugatti, splashed me with a puddle as you left in a hurry” is about you know the person chasing what they felt success looked like and leaving me behind in the process. It’s also about not being mad about it, and just being over it, but they didn’t expect you to move on”
This is the first taste of what we can expect from DWY’s upcoming EP due out later this year. This song won’t be the only personal song on the EP, we can expect to hear more true stories that will sure to take over our emotions all over again.
“”I want the music to do the talking. I tell my life through my songs. I’m not afraid to be vulnerable and say what I feel” – DWY
