Producer, singer-songwriter and visual artist Alewya teams up with multi-award winning drummer, producer and composer Moses Boyd on new track “The Code,” out today via Because London Records. As the world came to a halt, these two London-based artists came together in their hometown to collaborate and their artistic chemistry was apparent only minutes after jamming together in the studio.

Moses says on the collaboration “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.”

“This track came so naturally,” Alewya adds. “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.”

Alewya is known for her single “Sweating.” Moses Boyd released his album Dark Matter which was nominated for a 2020 Mercury Prize.

Lisey Tigra grew up in Columbia and is now in London working with people like Brett Shaw. Shaw is working with her on her EP much as he did with Laga Gaga, Foals and Florence + The Machine. Today she releases “Crime Scene.”

Speaking more on the track, Lisey explained: “This track is essentially about the search of truths within us and others that are sometimes hard to confront but must be brought to light. It is about acknowledging how our darker nature drives us to get involved in harmful situations and wanting to know what drives other people to hurt us. It is about wanting clarity in a world that is shady and obscure.”

Katie Melua recently released Album No 8. No she is having her first ever worldwide livestream concert. It will be broadcast live from London’s Rivoli Ballroom. Melua has worked with Drift to arrange this special show.

“I could not be more delighted to perform ‘Album No. 8’ and some favourites from my back catalogue with my dear band and crew next month,” says Katie. “Since seeing the very first Driift show, Laura Marling at Union Chapel, I’ve been hell-bent on finding a way to bring our team together in a gorgeous setting to play live for our fans.

 “Our choice of venue is the beautiful Rivoli Ballroom in the heart of London. Opened in 1913 and a famous dancehall in the 1950s, the building was the setting for the video for our recent single A Love Like That. I had the pleasure of performing on its spectacular stage for the shoot and I can’t wait to return to finally play for an audience.

 “This very special live performance will be directed by Charlie Lightening, who also directed that video, and joining me on stage will be Tim Harries on bass, Mark Edwards on keys, Zurab Melua on guitars, Joe Yoshida on drums and Nina Harries on double bass and backing vocals. See you there!”
