Obenewa – Marshmallow
Obenewa is now streaming a new track ‘Marshmallow’, which follows previous single releases ‘He’ and ‘Solid Gold’ through Kieron McIntosh’s (Plan B, Paloma Faith) new Wunderkind imprint. The new release follows slots for Obenewa singing back up for the likes of Rosie Lowe and Plan B (also contributing on two tracks from the #1 album iLL Manors) plus radio support across BBC Radio 1 & 1 Xtra and a spot on the Gilles Peterson-curated Brownswood Bubblers compilation.
A co-write with McIntosh and Walter Ego, the new track finds Obenewa’s wry wordplay- ‘just put heat on it, around the fire’- entwined around pacey, stuttering bass-beats and strict handclaps. Speaking about the track Obenewa says; “This tune was written with Kieron and Walter Ego, he already had the beat and at this time we were writing quite a lot. We wrote it at my flat, we wanted to write something fun, something to dance to!”
