TUNE Clap! Clap! - Moving On ft. Martha Da'ro
Featured on his forthcoming Liquid Portraits album on Black Acre, Clap! Clap! teams up with RUFFMERCY for the official video of ‘Moving On’ (feat. Martha Da’ro).
Cutting his teeth making graphics for MTV and Nickelodeon, RUFFMERCY (real name Russ Murphy) has since gone on to design art and music videos for many high quality musicians, including DJ Shadow, Nightmares On Wax, Tom Misch, Commodo, Young Thug, Knxwledge, Wiz Khalifa, Lone, Disclosure, Blue Daisy, Pusha T, Flying Lotus, not to mention numerous Thom Yorke projects.
Having created the artwork for Clap! Clap!’s third album on Black Acre (Liquid Portraits is out 12th June), RUFFMERCY is also responsible for the official video of ‘Moving On’.
Clap! Clap!’s ‘Moving On’ is a song inspired by the idea of resilience and re-adaptation to any kind of situation. After creating the instrumental he contacted Martha Da'ro - a multi-faceted singer-songwriter known for blending dreamy pop with hip hop (in both French and English) - and gave her free rein to interpret the song whilst adding her own signature aesthetic.
"I think I always prefer working in a studio than long distance,” explains Da’ro. "But Clap! Clap!… this energy... this big beautiful energy that you feel in the music or even when just texting him. I’m so glad I got to be part of his project :)"
Clap! Clap!’s ‘Liquid Portraits’ album drops on 12th June, whilst ‘Moving On’ (feat. Martha Da’ro)’ is released on 26th May 2020.
