This Monday night, I’m coming at you with a recent tour video for Ayah Marar’s new single, ” Keep Me Up.” Ayah Marar was one of the first famous people to interact with me on twitter when I was starting out blogging, so I’ll always have a special place in my heart for her. She didn’t have to take the time to give me big ups from the UK, but she did. Her slick drum & bass meets rave production is off the charts and she brings a gorgeous edge to the usually ‘ard community.
The video has her flying from place to place, not in a jet, but just kind of grinding the gigs out. It takes a lot of bravery to be a lady and get shot as an artist without your makeup and putting it on camera, but she does it with effortlessness and goofy grace. Plus the song’s hot. So get at her. Metrik does great work on the production end, so it’s a match made in heaven. Ms. Marar is ever so occasionally in NYC, so don’t miss her when she is. Much love from Gotham. Hang tough y’all, Monday’s over.
