Magi Merlin makes an unapologetic debut with Free Grillz, her first single via Bonsound

Today, Magi Merlin makes her unabashedly loud debut with Free Grillz. After courting a cult following with her underground EPs Drug Music and On My Way to the Listening Party, the enigmatic Magi Merlin (pronounced MADGE-eye) is stepping into her moment with this new track, produced with longtime collaborator and beatsmith Funkywhat.

Menacing, icy, and above all, unconcerned with your approval, Free Grillz finds Magi Merlin showing off her vocal arsenal in a sensuous and confident rapping style paired with a wistful hook. With this track, the self-described “cheeky nihilist” makes herself clear : she wants to start a ruckus. Combining jazzy scats, raps, and breakbeats together in her musical cauldron to address issues like generational angst, fake friends, the casual racism of white suburbia, and the happy thrills of hedonism, while also reflecting on the mundanities of everyday life.

Directed by Walid Jabri, the music video for Free Grillz shows Magi in an intimidating, cold and yet utterly captivating light. Proudly flaunting her grillz, she embodies the daring attitude of the song and mesmerizes viewers in an array of red hues and fast moving shots. From motorcycle rides, to blowing off a boring guy and mosh pitting, Magi keeps us on our toes as she references the dark fast-tracked fame lifestyle in the lyrics.

After landing major gigs last summer (Osheaga performance, opening for Lido Pimienta at Contre-Courant to name a few), Magi Merlin earns another milestone as she is set to make her festival debut in the United States with a series of showcases at SXSW next month. See below for all upcoming performances.
