God Knows, Denise Chaila and Murli combine on new single Water

At the vanguard of the most recent incarnation of the Irish hip-hop movement is Limerick-based collective, narolane records.

Founded by Denise Chaila, MuRli and God Knows – all breakout artists in their own rights and all three Choice Music Prize winning artists – narolane comprises rappers, singers and producers who are pushing the boundaries of creativity and collaboration beyond any previous limits.

The narrative of suffering as being inherent to Blackness is a stain on the spirit. Sometimes, to challenge toxicity, you must call it out, reclaim who you are, reconnect with the truth and wash yourself free to breathe… When we believe in our joy, we are cleansing off the lies of oppression, of inferiority, of dehumanisation and poverty – and exchanging them for the truth of the life within us.
