Beginning to assert a fastening hold on the British urban scene, emphatic female MC, Deyah is back with her brand-new Care City EP – out via High Mileage, Low Life on 10th April 2020. The video to her new single, ‘Venthouse Suite’ is out now.
Few artists are able to replicate the raw, unashamed candour of Berkshire-based rapper, Deyah. A gripping open book, her confessional lyrics are articulate and unapologetically frank. An opposing blend of rousing narration behind lethargic, lo-fi beats, she excavates her deepest insecurities, probing and scrutinising the essence of her innermost vulnerabilities. Unconstrained by self-interest and armed with purposeful integrity, Deyah is free to pursue her own unique vision.
Following up 2019’s Lover Loner EP, Deyah’s new project, Care City is an extensive blueprint for a tumultuous few months, the darkest period of her life so far. Passionate and wholeheartedly to the point, it embodies a journey to the murky depths and back again, her mental state meticulously documented and relayed with brute and asserting honesty. A conceptual masterpiece, Care City searches for light in the eternal gloom.
The video to her new single, ‘Venthouse Suite’ addresses the torment of being judged and mistreated by others, together finding forgiveness in anguish and despair.
A swelling introduction, ‘Terminal 7’, channels hope in dystopia and sets the defiant tone Care City’s contemplative call to arms. Behind swimming atmospherics, ‘Okoposire’
