Malaki announces debut Cork headline show at Cyprus Avenue
‘Cocoon’ is the title of the collaborative project from Malaki and producer Matthew Harris. Beginning on April 17th with the release of “Fair Play (feat. Lucy McWilliams)” Malaki will release a new song every two weeks over the course of 10 weeks. Each track will include a different collaboration and each single artwork will be designed by a different Dublin artist in the hopes of promoting collaboration and community in these times.
“Cavalier (feat. Jeorge II)” will be the second single of the series, being released to all streaming platforms on Friday, May 1st. The song sees two artists from different musical backgrounds come together and attempt to fuse Malaki’s spoken-word background with Jeorge II’s more hard hitting trap influences. ‘Cavalier’ is, at face value, a witty retelling of a nightclub fight between two men over a woman, however underneath the surface the lyrics touch on the theme of toxic masculinity among young males, with both Malaki
and the feature Jeorge II offering different perspectives on the matter.
