Music is culture. Culture lasts forever.
Co-Living Culture is James Vincent McMorrow, David Anthony Curley (Otherkin) and Cody Lee, and today they’ve released their debut single which aims to highlight the housing crisis and destruction of venues throughout Ireland.
The single, ‘Renegador’, is a dance track which has been released on Faction Music Group’s newest imprint Lost Decay. Speaking about the song’s creation and the idea behind it, the group said, “Renegador started out as an incredible amount of fun in the studio one day. The more we worked on the song, the more we talked about places in Dublin where you might hear a record like this being played. Honestly, we struggled to come up with any. In the last five years so much has changed, we are of the opinion that cultural and art spaces are the beating heart of a city, but so many of them have been taken away and replaced with structures that aren’t meant for those who occupy the city at all.”
Co-Living Culture go on to say, “Musicians will always figure it out, how to make music, how to play it live. This song is meant as a love letter to that idea. It’s a love letter to the pure unbridled joy that only music can bring, to dance culture, to 90’s house music, to flicking through stations in the car as a kid until an absolute banger comes on, and then turning it all the way up so everyone on the street could hear what you were playing, could hear what the music said about you.”
