Bad Apples Music signee Birdz is proud to share his new single “Place of Dreams” feat. Ecca Vandal, taken from his forthcoming EP of the same name. As premiered via Complex, the release arrives ahead of a huge year for Bad Apples Music, announcing their partnership with Universal Music Australia to offer a platform for excellence for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices.

Balancing moments of delicate keys between formidable beats, the track tells a tale of limitations laid down by others and ultimately having the strength to believe in oneself. Leading with the explosive vocal prowess of Ecca Vandal, the single flows with production by Trials, and the raw rap that has cemented Birdz’ status as one of the country’s most exciting hip hop acts today. Always formed by his heritage, the track evokes a compelling story told through both lyrics and organic composition.

Birdz says of “Place of Dreams”The song really touches on the concept of a glass ceiling and the limitations people try put on you, especially where I come from and if you’re Indigenous… Ultimately, Place Of Dreams is about believing in yourself, having the strength to break through the bullshit and continue paving your own path.

Combined with a compelling Like a Version performance, the young emcee was launched into the national spotlight through support from community radio, triple j and triple j unearthed for his honest words and raw perspective on prolific social issues.
