Hedara – Numb

Hedara

Time to strip it back a little with London-based singer-songwriter Hedara‘s latest single, ‘Numb’.

Hedara (aka Scarlet Billham) graduated London’s famous BRIT School, alongside Freya Ridings and others, and enjoyed some time performing under different alias’ and bands. It was only after a near-death experience, narrowly escaping a diabetic coma, that she learnt a harrowing lesson and took stock of what’s important in life.

Slowly finding her way back into music, she began working with different songwriters and producers on before finding a connection with Carey Willetts (Dua Lipa, Freya Ridings, Dermot Kennedy). Together they co-wrote and produced eight tracks, three of which now form the EP ‘Slow’, which includes the single ‘Numb’.

Speaking of the track, Hedara explains,

“Numb is probably the most honest song I’ve written. I wrote it when I was going through a tough time, and although people were around to support me, I was also being told how to feel. I was feeling everything but being made to feel nothing at all.”

Taka Perry – Slow (Feat. Jordi Davis)

Recent student, Taka Perry, has just shared his melodic and fantastical single, ‘Slow’.

Although written some time ago, the track has only just seen the light of day on the blogosphere, partly due to some friends from high school secretly creating a video for Taka, using an older demo version of the song, which obviously took Taka by surprise.

Of the video, Taka explains,

“The video is about a girl that doesn’t actually exist, but a figment of imagination inside the singer’s head. Whilst the video is predominantly comprised of imagery and visuals, the absence of other characters, sets an eerie undertone to the video, whilst bringing the attention back to the main character.”

He has enlisted the vocal talents of his friend, Jordi Davis (String Elephants).

For a limited time, ‘Slow’ is being offered as a free download on Taka’s Soundcloud page.

Sounds like: Chet Faker, Flume, Fort Minor, Bonobo, Solomon Grey
