Though the word apocalypse gets conflated with doom and gloom, the term itself is more synonymous with ‘revelation’. You can count on Baltimore multi-hyphenate artist Neru Thee Fourth Fugee to bring similarly based energy to Big Universal Themes, previously displaying her sprawling talents on criminally underrated masterpiece The Almanac. On new single “End Daze”, she joins forces with none other than BbyMutha, showing she can flex straight-up club bangers just as confidently.
“The song was inspired by MF Doom and Vince Staples, while the title itself is a double entendre on ‘End Days’, referencing a catastrophic end-of-the-world event, and ‘In Daze’ connecting those moments when you find yourself lost inside your thoughts. ‘End Daze’ brings a lot of boastful and confident energy, and that’s how I want my listeners to feel when they hear the single – powerful and confident like they can take on the world. I wrote ‘End Daze’ to continue to create balance with my music, but to also show that I cannot be categorised or boxed in – my music and style transcend genres”.
With the release of “End Daze”, Neru – who also founded Baltimore multi-disciplinary artist community AstroKnot Collective – has announced new record Greater Than, which is set to be released this summer.
