Australian talent Marcelo De La Vega isn’t only gifted with making exceedingly catchy alt-pop tracks, but he’s also a film-maker (he created and co-directed this video), model, photographer and fashion designer.
“’Broke & Criminal’ was a really weird and hard song to write. I wrote it after a girlfriend and I had broken up. I found out that she had been cheating on me and I was hurt and angry. A couple of months after we broke up, we hooked up at a party. I found out later that she was still with her then new boyfriend. It was an exceptionally hard and confronting time, because all the feelings I had previously felt, I now had a part of impacting on someone else. ‘Broke & Criminal’ is a reflection song about this time, and the anger that came with it.”
Taken from the forthcoming debut EP ‘Conversation’ which is out later this year.
