Dublin based artist MARCUS is releasing his debut single OBEY.
Mixing influences of Frank Ocean, Amy Winehouse with Skepta and Mos Def, Marcus has created a unique, alternative, enticing pop sound. OBEY was written over a year ago about an on/off relationship Marcus was in. It talks about how even though someone can hurt you it doesn’t change how you feel about them.
Having dropped out of college in 2015 Marcus started writing songs and began gigging continuously around open mic nights in Ireland. The love of performing and songwriting took him to London in 2016 where he honed his craft while playing any and every night he could.
With only a shoestring budget to work off, himself and the delivery driver at the takeaway he worked at begged, borrowed and stole their way to making the beautiful and cinematic video to accompany the single. The modern day Bonnie & Clyde story was directed by Alan Dunne and Stubborn Monkey Media, and fits perfectly with the tone and ideas of the song.
