Loyle Carner – Tierney Terrace

“All I wanted was a fucking man, to guide me through the darkness, hold my fucking hand,Every time that motherfucker ran, I didn’t understand.”

So runs the refrain of Tierney Terrace, the brand new track – which is set for release on July 24th as a 7” vinyl through paradYse Records – from the 20-year-old South London rapper Loyle Carner. This young artist is able to deliver some very personal stories from his childhood, like the one told to The Fader: “Just off Brixton hill, Tierney Terrace was where my grandparents lived. It became a bit of a refuge for me when my mum was working late. I learnt a lot from both of them, and at times, felt my grandfather was the only man I could look up to. I wrote this a while back, after a run in with my biological dad.

We’re really looking forward to seeing him at the next edition of Visions Festival. Listen to Tierney Terrace below.
