about

"mOth" is an acronym for Man of The Hour.

mOth references the unending cycles of existence and reflects on how the past, present, and future shape my reality. The songwriting is a re-articulation of self through a dissection of identity. The song also references some of my favorite creative artists such as Viola Davis, Lady Leshurr, and Junji Ito who created “Uzumaki”, a horror manga series.

Recorded in London, October 2019.

lyrics

You deal them cards like a violin
I’m stringing Viola on a Davis ting
Getting sentimental on a broken wing
I’m just getting settled in the den
Making my amends
With the devil in the ends
Uzumaki spiral Ice bezel friend
Uzumaki viral I was traveling
Then I crescendo then I crescendo
Bigger in the end

I swear that I’m the man in the tower
I got a lawn chair
To watch the bloom of the hours
You got a Moncler
I wear the stink of the flowers
While all these Big Ben butterflies spring to devour

I swear that I’m the man in the tower
I got a lawn chair
To watch the bloom of the hours
You got a Moncler
You wear the stink of the flowers
I got them Big Ben butterflies
Spring to the hours

Converse kick me in your mug
Pink piranha bite on the blisters of your tongue
Tint my windows black park it out front
Barking cause the drugs
And the genie in my lungs

Swish that's nug
Swish swish that's love
Give me kisses slurpy like a leopard or a slug
Whispers from a scanty bat
Batty bug tug
Batty bug rug
Had her cradled in a hug

Tap tap bands
No romance
From the man dem lance
Ring ring ring no chance
Win win win dem pants
No advance dem gyal dey glance
Want my loot dem neeks they prance
Want dem boots too chic they chance
Wash your hands
Lady leisure make dem dance

Lance a lot of naught
Cheeks of beaten rocks
Vans no boot on marks
Yeah
Cheeky way too smart
Peaks of sweets and silver parts
Yeah
Snakes that travel dark
Don’t you run don’t you dart
Don’t you spar don’t you run
Don’t you travel and embark

I swear that I’m the man in the tower
I got a lawn chair
To watch the bloom of the hours
You got a Moncler
I wear the stink of the flowers
You got them Big Ben butterflies
Spring to devour

I swear that I’m the man of the hour
I got a lawn chair
To watch the bloom of the flowers
You got a Moncler
I wear the stink and the power
You watch dem big batty gyals
Spring up to them vowels

You deal them cards like a violin
I’m stringing Viola on a Davis ting
Getting sentimental on a broken wing
I’m just getting settled in the den
Making my amends
With the devil in the ends
Uzumaki spiral Ice bezel friend
Uzumaki viral I was traveling
Then I crescendo then I crescendo
Bigger in the end

about

Dua Saleh Saint Paul, Minnesota

It’s tempting to describe Dua Saleh as a natural. An artist who only began recording music two years ago isn’t supposed to sing with such infectious bravado and haunting gloom. Yet to say Dua, who identifies as gender non-binary and goes by they/them pronouns, has arrived fully-formed on their first ever EP project titled “Nūr” - (pronounced “noor” - meaning “the light” in Arabic). ... more
