Back with his own brand of melancholic hip-hop is exciting newcomer Buppy with “Violence”. Produced by BOIA, the catchy tune takes us through the breakdown of a toxic relationship led by sweet electronic pianos and a heady bass line. Co-written with his sister Eleanor Kingston, Buppy’s latest single reflects the trials of growing up and taps into the thousands of issues teens face on a regular basis.
Explaining the meaning of the tune, the singer-songwriter said, “Violence is a reflection of when love turns violent, highlighting “the mental manipulation and emotional trauma that cloud your perception of what it means to love as a teenager.”
Accompanied by a slick video directed by frequent collaborator Anthony Palmer, the video cuts between dreamy scenic views and cool studio lights, telling a story of abstract situations and relationships. Originally from Utah, Buppy, his sister and musical partner BOIA moved to LA in order to focus on music and this dream team are showing no signs of slowing down.
