Named as one the new best artists of 2018 by BBC Introducing, SURYA‘s latest track, ‘U ME WE’, is probably his most personal work to date. Over a soothing acoustic soul R&B setting, baring strong influences from the likes of Frank Ocean, Justin Timberlake, The Neptunes and D’Angelo, the track gives an insight into his childhood in Chennai and relocation to London, taking baby steps towards building a legacy as a musician.
‘U ME WE’, follows Surya’s independent album, ‘Adolessence’ – recorded whist at university – and two singles. All of his releases were featured on BBC introducing as well as receiving attention from major online music tastemakers including We Plug Good Music, Acid Stag and Mystic Sons.
Be to tune in as Surya is shooting visuals for this track with the help of fellow YCUK members, a UK-based creative collective, featuring some of the best up and coming talent in film, music and design.
