HIRA KING is fast becoming one of London’s hottest new names off the back of only two online releases. Building on the success of ‘Run’ and ‘Hummingbird’, the mix of vintage 16-bit aesthetic with a glitchy, RnB style that is as quietly impressive as HIRA’s own playful vocals and production. ‘WF/ CL’ showcases more of that uniquely futuristic soul music, computerised samples clashing with gossamer vocals to create something sumptuous and shimmering. An excitingly maverick new UK talent.
Hira is currently releasing music via ‘Chosen People’ (www.chosen-people.co.uk) which is Roc Nation’s ROMANS label. Hira is one of the latest artists ROMANS has worked with on a list that includes Kwabs, Mary J Blige, Naughty Boy and more.
