MORILLA Burns The Gender Notions Of Love In His Smoky R&B Single “Impossible”

Warning: Steamy R&B.


Midnight Pool Party’s singer/songwriter, Darren Morilla, has debuted his single “Impossible” under his solo project moniker, MORILLA. Darren’s voice is more ambitions than ever, positioning his vocals at the forefront of the melody while letting the slow-burning rhythm wrap its listeners with steamy R&B. There is muteness between notes and echoes within the lines that capture the dreamy euphoria our brains experience when we are infatuated with someone. Regardless of who the person is, “Impossible” captures the core emotional and primal experience we go through. Stream below:

“‘Impossible’ is (broadly) about putting your all into a relationship, but not knowing how the other person feels or knows what they want. As a gay man, I think one of the most important things for the ‘equality’ movement is visibility. The experiences and emotions I was experiencing were real when I was writing this song. I wanted people to know that I wrote this song when I was falling in love with another man, and show that what I experience as a gay man is no different to any other relationship. I wanted to stay true to myself and write about my experiences,”

MORILLA teamed up with cln to produce the track and while he hasn’t unveiled any album news yet, you can expect to hear new music in the upcoming months. Follow him on Facebook and Instagram.
