BRAND NEW SINGLE ‘PEACHES’ OUT TODAY ON WARNER MUSIC IRELAND
“Love it! Anthem! This should be a hit record! Great lyrics sung with authenticity!”… DAVID HOLMES
Menrva, comprise of brothers Luke and Christian Papenfus, the House Music production duo hailing from Northern Ireland. The brothers have been making waves on the House Music scene over the last few years. They are unleashing their new single “Peaches’ today. The track is themed on the Jill Scott track “Hate On Me” featuring the incredible vocals of Abby P. The brothers knew they could reimagine this R&B modern classic with house music sensibilities and bring it to a new audience.
Though some might interpret “Peaches” as an expression of self-confidence and empowerment while evoking feelings of freedom and liberation, the brothers prefer to leave the interpretation up to the listener as essentially what they have delivered in “Peaches” finds life on the dancefloor. The brothers are from a musical family and from a young age, they embraced a symphony of instruments, nurturing a deep passion for music that would ultimately shape their unique creative styles.
Before becoming the musical powerhouse known as Menrva, Luke and Christian embarked on a diverse journey through the sonic landscape. Their musical odyssey began with forays into Hip Hop, Grime, and Drum and Bass, each genre serving as a stepping stone in their artistic evolution. However, it was the vibrant city of London that truly shaped their musical destiny. The brothers relocated to the British capital, where they would spend six transformative years. The brothers honed their craft independently at this time, both exploring many genres and roles in music as producers/writers.
In the vibrant metropolis of London, a city teeming with culture, resounding with music, and bursting with limitless creative potential, Luke and Christian discovered themselves completely engrossed in the city’s opulent musical landscape. The pulsating beats of 4/4 dance and the irresistible charm of house music served as potent catalysts, sparking a passion that would chart the trajectory of their future pursuits.
Fuelled by this newfound inspiration, Menrva came into existence, bringing with it not only the rich musical diversity cultivated throughout their journey but also the undeniable, contagious energy that London had generously infused into them.
Their duo’s journey in music has been marked by consistent support from influential platforms like Radio 1, Kiss FM, and Cool FM. Notably, their tracks have graced the airwaves and featured on Love Island, catapulting them into the spotlight. Menrva’s remixes for renowned artists such as Lennon Stella and Tom Grennan have further solidified their reputation as artists / producers. In addition, Menrva’s previous releases garnered widespread acclaim, receiving support from industry heavyweights like Steve Aoki, Tiesto, Sagala, and many more, showcasing their ability to captivate both listeners and fellow musicians alike with their unique sound.
With an unrelenting dedication to their craft, the dynamic duo has been hard at work crafting new material that is poised to make a significant impact on the music scene in the very near future. Culminating in a recent signing with Warner Music Ireland and now partnered with 67 Management. The new deal with Warner Music Ireland sees them as long-term artists, along with international plans for the DJ/Producer duo. It’s anticipated to be a big song for the guys seeing them re-enter the market with a new team to push them internationally for the first time.
Stay tuned for what Menrva has in store, as their musical journey continues to evolve and captivate audiences worldwide.
