London riser Alewya spars with incendiary jazz percussionist Moses Boyd.
A singer, rapper, and producer, Alewya's triple threat capabilities mark her out from the crowd, and 2021 promises to be fertile ground for her potent creativity.
New single 'The Code' follows the almighty 'Sweating', and it finds Alewya leaning on the physicality that jazz rhythms can provide.
Grappling with fresh possibilities, 'The Code' was constructed in the studio alongside Mercury nominee Moses Boyd.
The drummer comments: "My favourite moments in the studio are those when the flow is seamless and doesn't need to be explained. We made 'The Code' within minutes of jamming together and it was just that, seamless. I knew we would have great musical chemistry and it's been refreshing to work with someone as open, brave and inquisitive as Alewya. I know she has so much more great music to come."
Alewya adds: "This track came so naturally. Moses has a way of understanding musical language and weeding it out of you - I was truly grateful for it. 'The Code' is essentially a song sung by the observer in me, observing the shadow of me. Captures what we as a collective and individually are going through - an intense dark night of the soul."
