Tasmanian Aboriginal artist DENNI has teamed up with Greeley for her latest single, Murder, and it's a powerful protest song about how Australia is mistreating the country's First Nations people. It's an important track, and that's why we're so happy to be premiering it.
DENNI wrote the song as a way to heal, as well as illuminate both her personal experiences and those of the people around her. It's a way for her to process the "oppression and fear" that she's experienced as a result of living in Australia.
Australia still has a long, long way to go when it comes to recognising the rights and experiences of First Nations People, and DENNI is using her voice to show people what they might not otherwise see.
DENNI's flow on the track is infectious, and her lyricism lands haymaker after haymaker. You'll want to listen to the track a few times, and unpack not only the lyrics, but how your own experiences play into it.
The film clip for the track was filmed at Brisbane's Botanical Gardens by AV Club, and features local artist Numpty painting a temporary piece. We love film clips shot with the artist's whole crew, and this looks like it was a ton of fun to shoot.
Speaking about the track, DENNI says the track is a long time coming. "I have wanted to release a song that hits as hard as Murder for most of my career. BLM is not a gimmick but something close to my heart that will forever be relevant. This one is for my mob, and my own healing."
Check out the video for Murder above. DENNI's new project, the RUNAWAYS EP, is set to drop on 22nd October, and it's set to feature some of the most exciting names in hip-hop in Australia.
