Performer/poet/producer My Real Name Is Starship! makes his debut on TWIB with his new single titled “Vunnel Tision (The Motive)” The track has an eerie, atmospheric feel with its sparse arrangement, whirling synths and guitar plucks to match. He says it was inspired by the leak and gloomy appearance of London’s skylines and the unique feel of the famed metropolis. The instrumental is quite short as well and sure has a very dynamic feel as the track slowly builds into plateau towards the end.
In summary “Vunnel Tision (The Motive)” is a sonic depiction of the city in its blinding, neon vulnerability. It is a mission statement, an open letter, and ultimately a homage to My Real Name Is Starship’s home: London.
Performer/poet/producer My Real Name Is Starship!’s sound is an eclectic fusion of Alternative, Indie, and Hip-Hop, with some flavourings of folk as well as jazz. A sound reminiscent of Daisy Agers floating on an undercurrent of the gritty, mystique of 90s/00s British Alternative music. His music falls into the sonic concoctions indicative of the zeitgeist flowing through London and the South, as seen by artists such as King Krule, Tom Misch, Cosmo Pyke, Rex Orange County, and Yellow Days. My Real Name Is Starship! dropped his first full length EP, ‘Pavement Transmissions’ early 2019 and continues to diligently craft new tracks and steadily perform at gigs/open mics across London and the South.
