Artist Manila Killa returns with the new single, “Dark Places” with singer/songwriter Kwesi, via Moving Castle.
A soulful collaboration that acts as a reminder to not to dwell in the past, but to look forward to what the future has in store. The song provides a hypnotic safe haven vibe with evocative words and auspicious energy that exhibits both artists’ fortes.
Manila Kila told us that “Dark Places marks the beginning of a new perspective on how I view the world alongside music. Feelings of nostalgia have overcome many of us, including me in the past two years and I wanted to explore that realm through this song. After hearing the initial vocal demo, I immediately knew that I wanted to draw inspiration from brooding, moody and dark influences and Kwesi’s haunting voice and lyrics offer a glimpse of hope that I molded the instrumental production around.”
Kwesi added that “We have choices to make every day and sometimes, the mind can go to dark and strange places that are often unhealthy and destructive.” He also said that “At one point or another, we find ourselves scared and confused about the past and what it means for the future. This song is about finding our way out of that darkness and working to be better for ourselves and those around us every day.”
