Rocky Questions The Ups And Downs Of Relationships With Debut Single, ‘How Will I Know’

Drawing comparisons with greats such as Nina Simone, Erykah Badu, and Billie Holiday, as well as future legends like Janelle Monae and Macy Gray, South Korea-based songstress, ROCKY has released her exquisite new offering ‘How Will I Know’, the first taste of her anticipated debut project – set for release early 2020 – with a second single coming next month.

Produced by Defnelson and written by ROCKY herself, the single tackles the common question “are they into me?” as it explores the good and the bad of relationships and situationships, the song lets you know when to cut the person you’re dating off. ROCKY’s raspy jazz vocals are offset by dark hip hop instrumentals, creating the perfect mood for a song about love in the dating apocalypse.

Alongside her exciting new music, ROCKY recently published her first poetry book titled ‘Blue Bird’, which saw the Montreal native exploring themes around blackness, womanhood, freedom, self-love, and their intersectionalities, to rave reviews. However her creative outlets don’t end there, she also appeared in Korean TV drama series WWW earlier this summer, and has performed in three burlesque plays, produced by Starlight Burlesque, including last year’s WWC Superstars and Open Letters, and last month’s acclaimed P.U.S.S.I Whipped.

New Track: Glory – Chloe Bodur

19-year-old North West Londoner CHLOE BODUR has been causing quite a stir with her single  ‘Glory.’ Fusing elements of neo-soul, jazz and pop, her newest number stole the Track of the Day spot on numerous BBC Introducing stations, as well as being added to rotation on Jazz FM.

Produced by UK Top 10 charting producer JD.Reid (Mabel, Katy B, Sinead Harnett, D Double E),  ‘Glory’ focuses on vulnerability and the underlying sense of loneliness. Bodur reveals, “It was originally written as a poem about youth trying to find love in themselves and in others and how one correlates with the other”.

Raised in a mixed heritage family, whilst immersed in vibrant London, Bodur credits her multi-cultural upbringing for her array of musical influences. Idolising the likes of Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra, as well as gaining inspiration from artists such as Quincey Jones, D’angelo and Frank Ocean.

Deemed the most promising new act and already selling out live shows,CHLOE BODUR is ready for the next step of her musical endeavour with the highly anticipated release ‘Glory’, available from yesterday.
