Rising star Marcelo De La Vega drops his brand new single ‘Broke & Criminal‘ featured along with an official video
The new track ‘Broke & Criminal‘ is the second to be taken from his forthcoming debut EP ‘Conversation’. It follows October’s ‘Told You’.
Marcelo shares about the track, “Broke & Criminal was a really weird and hard song to write. I wrote it after a girlfriend and I had broken up. I found out that she had been cheating on me and I was hurt and angry. A couple of months after we broke up, we hooked up at a party. I found out later that she was still with her then new boyfriend. It was an exceptionally hard and confronting time, because all the feelings I had previously felt, I now had a part of impacting on someone else. Broke & Criminal is a reflection song about this time, and the anger that came with it.”
The new track has featured along with an accompanying Tarantino inspired film-clip, a story about two people who are recluse from society, on the run after they commit a series of murders.
Marcelo said: “The characters are based on Mickey and Mallory Knox from Natural Born Killers and we see them with a stolen car, a house they have broken into, and living outside of society with no one around in their own romantic world. The character that I play is obsessed with the girl and will do anything for her, and it continues from the ‘Told You’ clip, when this crazy girl who is dancing on the street and seeing clouds, picks me up at the end.”
Marcelo has also made a name as a model, photographer, and now fashion designer. He recently launched a fashion line ‘CIELO’ in collaboration with his sister – a sustainably sourced, UK manufactured collection.
The new single ‘Broke & Criminal’ is the second track which will feature on his debut EP ‘Conversation’, due out later this year. Marcelo will be creating further film-clips for future singles from the collection, continuing his theme of visual artistry.
