Dua Saleh’s New Single “Body Cast” Mourns Those Killed by Police
Originally appeared on Grimy Goods.
A protest song is a genre that transcends sound, and the diverse outcries this year continue to ring out. Even the sound of Minneapolis’ own Dua Saleh has varied since their last single, “Umbrellar,” which appeared on Grimy Goods’ Best New Songs Playlist in April. The Sudanese artist’s new cut is a portrait of police brutality. Called “Body Cast,” Dua Saleh’s single captures a fleeting moment of strength in the face of blatant injustice.

8. Dua Saleh – “Body Cast”
This was one of my favorite songs of the year fullstop. Something about the portrait-style railroad tracks motif completed the “Body Cast” aesthetic.
