Alewya Serves Only Herself On ‘Let Go’

Tune in now...

London based hyphenate Alewya returns with new single ‘Let Go’.

A truly unique talent, Alewya draws together the full range of her experiences to find focus in her music. 2021’s remarkable ‘Panther In Mode’ EP fused club electronics with left-field pop, illustrating shards of alt-R&B in the process.

Yet there’s more to this, too. Pulling aspects of her Ethiopian and Egyptian heritage into her work, Alewya is able to impact a remarkable sense of self down on record.

New single ‘Let Go’ severs Alewya from any lingering constructs, a song that serves only its maker. Dynamic and exuberant in its energy flow, ‘Let Go’ pulls away from its anchor, allowing Alewya to drift freely, without constraint.

Having been handpicked by Grace Jones to last year’s Meltdown, it’s clear that the sheer, unrelenting creativity of Alewya is gaining momentum. On this form, she’s unstoppable.
