ASHA - Record Straight

Hotly-tipped alt-R&B artist ASHA continues her emergence onto the London scene as one of the most hotly-tipped young female singer/songwriters of 2015 and seamlessly into the Ones To Watch categories for 2016. Formerly a street-dance teacher, a raw sexuality as well as a knowing city-hustle exudes from her, simultaneously conjuring a mix of vulnerability, coyness, power and yearning.

Building serious hype in the wake of her two previous releases this year – her incendiary debut single, "We Can Do This" and her cathartic, self-empowering follow-up, "Chapters", ASHA returns with her third offering called "Record Straight", which sees her chart new territory. That unique realness is back in full effect over a markedly more bouncy, yet satisfyingly metallic production that projects ASHA's mantra for her generation growing up today: self-empowerment, self-respect, not being a fool, not taking any shit.

The timely dose of ASHA's intoxicating freshness sees her unmistakable vocal on a more upbeat, bouncy R&B instrumental with her ability to cut through the bull and document what's real cemented as amongst the finest and most vital coming out of London right now.

Listen to "Record Straight" below.

Premiere via Pigeons and Planes.
