Listen To Mara TK's Slinky Track ‘Highly Medicated’

Mara TK, former frontman of Electric Wire Hustle, has unleashed slick funk / soul track ‘Highly Medicated’, the third single from his forthcoming debut solo album Bad Meditation. The new drop follows 2020 collaboration 'Met At The River' with Kenyan neo-soul singer Xenia Manasseh, which was rolled out by label and social enterprise Extra Soul Perception in November. ‘Highly Medicated’ also introduces Mara TK's link-up with Aotearoa's Years Gone By Records, who have teamed up with TK to release Bad Meditation on vinyl in May. Sink into the latest piece of heartbreaking neo-soul from Mara TK, who delves into the themes of the track here...

“I tried everything to plug up the void: antidepressants, molly, acid, hiking, running, dancing, Ritalin, one-night stands, six-month stands, spending money on jackets, airfares for bad friends, and so on. Eventually I shut everyone out and I was finally alone. I takoto tūpāpaku au. I would put on videos of the old people here talking - interviews with my elders. They said ‘Love yourself, forgive yourself. This is where you start.’ and that’s been the best medication I’ve had so far.”


Mara TK's debut solo album 'Bad Meditation' is out May 4th via Years Gone By Records / Extra Soul Perception.
