Sad Night Dynamite & Moonchild Sanelly join forces to share the incredible new single “Demon,” which is available now and received its first play on BBC Radio 1 as the Hottest Record In The World. The new song follows Sad Night Dynamite’s acclaimed recent single “Psychedelic Views” (featuring IDK) on top of Moonchild Sanelly’s latest track, “Undumpable.”

“Demon” is an electric collaboration between South African star Moonchild Sanelly and Glastonbury-natives Sad Night Dynamite: danceable, dystopian but ultimately empowering in its exorcism of dark influences in your life. Recorded remotely over lockdown, “Demon” takes Moonchild and Sad Night’s two very different experiences and transforms them into something strange and new.

“It was amazing to work with the guys on this track, I love their sound,” says Moonchild Sanelly. “I’d written about a ‘Demon’ based on a very real and dark experience I was going through, and it was a great surprise to hear how the guys added to it and developed the sound. This was a deep story for me, and it’s great to work with people with such a different sound who are across the globe feeling the same things about someone!”

Sad Night Dynamite, meanwhile, started work on the track “after moon’s verse gave Josh a nightmare in which he was on trial for being a witch. In the end it turned out he wasn’t one, but by that point it was too late, they’d already drowned him. We’ve been big fans of Moonchild for a minute now. We love her music and what she stands for. The energy she brought with ‘Demon’ was so unique. Collabing with her was a no brainer.”

Moonchild Sanelly’s recent releases open up a new chapter for her after last year’s EP Nüdes, her standout feature on the Gorillaz album Strange Timez (“With Love to an Ex”), her killer bars on Ghetts UK radio smash “Mozambique” as well as her feature in Beyoncé’s Black Is King visual album for the song “MY POWER.” Fearless, inclusive and a lot of fun, the artist is only just getting started. Her iconic personal style combined with an outspoken approach to female sexual desire has earned her collaborations with the aforementioned Beyoncé and Gorillaz as well as the likes of Diplo and Wizkid and built her a devoted fanbase. She is “a global superstar waiting to happen” according to Damon Albarn.
