Dave has finally dropped his long-awaited debut album ‘Psychodrama’, and the 20-year-old has produced an immense body of work that solidifies his status as one of the best artists in the country.
Fresh from making history by landing his first number one with “Funky Friday”, Dave’s debut plays out as a dialogue between the Streatham-born artist and his psychotherapist which allows Dave to fully flex his musical dexterity. From start to finish, it’s an accomplished, game-changing record, which features Dave’s unparalleled story-telling, original concept and cutting wordplay into a slickly-executed, 11-track package.
Complete with introspective lyrics that deal with Dave’s back story, identity, and social-realism, ‘Pyschodrama’ is a straight-up special LP. With guest appearances from J Hus, Burna Boy and Ruelle and production from Fraser T Smith as well as Jae5, 169, TSB, IO, 1Mind and newcomer Kyle Evans, the album is a powerful debut that sets Dave apart from any of his peers.
