As election season picks up and tensions raise across the country, it’s important to know what side you’re on. For Munk Duane, the longtime Boston musician has drawn a line in the sonic sand with his new single, a cruising slice of soul-pop called “Dangerous.”
Over six albums and countless music licenses, Duane has balanced a life as both local music hustler and national creative voice, a known name in our bar and club circuit while also reaching national audiences through shows like Hawaii Five-O, NCIS, The Sopranos, and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
For “Dangerous,” written during the pandemic at a time when live performances for everyone have ground to a halt, Duane’s modern soul touch explores how people have begun to follow false narratives down a scary path, losing sight of who they are and increasing the tension around others.
“Despite a person’s intentions, ignoring expertise, embracing conspiracy/paranoia, and cultivating division have brought us to where we are today,” says Duane. “These practitioners are, in a word, dangerous, both to individuals and to society.”
