Record of the week: Black by Dave
01 March, 2019 — By Róisín Gadelrab
RAPPER Dave’s thoughtful consideration of what it means to be black in latest single, Black, is both a celebration and an examination of the factors that shaped him and those around him. Choosing a slow instrumental as backing, Dave leaves space for his lyrics to be heard – and they demand attention. Gently powerful, keep en eye on this one as his debut album, Psychodrama, is released on March 8.
