22-year-old rising artist Macca Wiles releases a new single “too dead to save” featured along with a music video
An infectious cut laced with dark lyrical undertones, “too dead to save” was co-produced alongside Mati Schwartz (Yungblud, Massive Attack, Halsey) and firmly establishes Macca Wiles as a versatile and incredibly exciting young artist.
The video for “too dead to save” provides an intimate, captivating insight into Macca’s life; via a lens of life on tour, recording studio footage, mixed with clips from lockdown and everything in between.
Born in Essex and moving to Atlanta at 17, he is striving to be the figurehead for a generation that’s been messed up, messed around and are looking for a respite.
MACCA WILES shares, “I wanted this video to be personal, a real look into my life and so that’s why I chose to use actual clips I’d taken from playing shows and just messing around…this is me and my crew having fun. We’ve all had a hard time over the last 12+ months but looking back it’s important to see there were some good times and laughs amongst all the bullshit. Hope this helps people to see the good times amongst the bad.”
Bringing together a unique raft of sonic touch-points, Macca is inarguably a rockstar-in-the-making as well as a hugely accomplished rapper, drawing influence from UK grime and the post-grunge American rock he grew up on.
Releasing his debut EP ‘Bad Habits’ during lockdown; to date he’s had overwhelmingly positive support from BBC Radio 1 (Jack Saunders, Annie Mac, Gemma Bradley, Yungblud, Tom Grennan).
