Darkest Hour" and "Freedom" were released, having already picked up considerable tastemaker support on Pigeons & Planes, Afropunk, OkayPlayer and Indie Shuffle. Originally from Uganda with brief stints in London and Oxford, Haula now comes through with a new atmospheric and darkly anthemic third offering called "Losing Touch", which looks to further cement her growing status as a bonafide songwriting talent. Conjuring the glacial emotion and expansiveness of Kate Bush or Anya, hers is a raw, timeless and effortless style. It's also a welcome return of an artist that’s bridging ever closer to genuine tipping point across both sides of the Atlantic and for good reason.
Speaking on the track, Haula says:
"The song came about after the breakdown of a relationship. It was my first real, longterm relationship and it was the worst feeling ever. I felt like I had lost touch with everything, myself, my mind hence the title 'Losing Touch'. It's really just reminiscing about the relationship and the fallout of it all."
