Listen to ’30minutes to Soweto’, the lead single to Priddy Ugly’s forthcoming EP, MUD, now available for pre-order.
Priddy Ugly unpacks the misfortunes he has endured and witnessed in his community with his latest single ‘30minutes to Soweto’ taken off his forthcoming EP, MUDslated for release on 2 September 2022.
As a chronological account of the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual scars that plague his thoughts, ‘30minutes to Soweto’ finds Priddy Ugly at the mercy of pondering hopelessness in a graphic narration of the ongoing consequences of South Africa’s relationship with poverty, crime and violence of all forms.
On ’30minutes to Soweto’, Priddy Ugly reflects over a moody boom bap instrumental built on flamenco streams, reminiscent of Trackmasters’ sound in the 90s. The music is as chilling as Priddy Ugly’s descriptive storytelling. We are in for a treat when MUD drops.
MUD will be the second release by Priddy Ugly under [Stay Low] after 2021’s SOIL.
MUD is now available for pre-order/pre-add on Apple Music.
