South London's DWY uses music as a means to reflect and understand his surroundings.
Quiet by nature, his introversion shouldn't be seen as withdrawing from the world - rather, it provides a platform for his voice to resonate with still more power.
As he said recently: “I write everything that’s going on inside my head. My music is completely personal to me.”
Linking with producer J.LBs - who has also worked with Dr. Dre and Rihanna - the South London artist is currently readying his brand new single.
'Everytime I See You Again' is naked in its emotion, the splintered R&B fuelled by a beat that feels more at home in golden age hip-hop.
Superbly smooth while still cutting a little deeper, the single is actually about unfulfilled love, the passing of time, and the importance of maintaining a connection.
DWY explains that the single is “about a friend I always had unresolved feelings for, we always kind of had a vibe with each other, but something always seemed to be in the way. Every time I’d see her years later, I’d go back to that place. It’s about how time doesn’t always change things."
We've got first play of the single - tune in below.
Catch DWY at London's Paper Dress Vintage on October 10th.
