Narolane are ready to take on the world with ‘Water’

Words: Dylan Murphy

Denise Chaila, MuRli and God Knows introduce their label with an eclectic new single. It arrives hot off the back of Denise’s Choice Prize win.

Individually, God Knows, MuRli and Denise Chaila have made waves in the Irish music scene. Now, through the inception of their own label Narolane Records, the trio have made a collective statement of intent to take on the world together.

Today, the trio have shared ‘Water’, a hypnotic and infectious anthem that they have described as a “baptism”.

Speaking on the track they said, “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, ” say the founders. “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.” 

The single artwork was provided by none other than legendary Irish photographer B+.

It follows a huge start to the year from Denise, who won the RTÉ Choice Prize for her mixtape ‘Go Bravely’.
