London based artist Attawalpa, real name Luis Felber, releases his new single and video, ‘Killer’. The second track to be lifted from his upcoming ‘Patterns’ EP due for release in 2021.
Written with the intention of portraying Human nature and Mother nature being two characters in a turbulent relationship, “Killer” moves with the nostalgic lilt of the likes of Lee Hazlewood and The Velvet Underground – with a suitably trippy visual to boot created and directed by George Moore.
Speaking on the track, Attawalpa said:
“I tried to write it from mother nature’s perspective. She’s turned into this frustrated zombie-like creature and he’s [Human nature] a pretty narcissistic user who just won’t leave her alone. I realised that lyrically and narratively this was a bit of a clumpy rabbit hole, so what I took from it was we are all going to die and I wanted to find an uplifting, positive perspective in that. It’s essentially evolved into a mantra that we are all going to die but let’s celebrate that because life is beautiful and so so rare.”
A deep croon over a fun fair backing as this track showcases Felber’s talent of songwriting. Haunting in places especially with the slow slightly threatening sounding vocals as Felber speaks more than sings with a mouth full of gravel. Theres so much going on here it takes a few spins to really appreciate this track fully.
