Alice Rowe Releases Single, ‘All Night’ + Announces Debut EP

Urban/pop hopeful ALICE ROWE returns with new single and her debut EP that blends together elements of soul, pop and the classic R&B that everyone loves and needs during these weird times.

Having spent 2020 releasing a plethora of singles, Alice Rowe felt it was time to show off the lushious vocals mixed in with emotional lyricism in this new track. The young creative is known for talking about relationships, whether it’s writing about that spark of meeting someone for the first time or talking about an ex who helps create the mindset of being successful and that being her revenge.

That particular mindset is helped by a number of things, the inspirations of Loyle Carner and Etta James that have helped sharpen her sound as the years have gone on. But the most important part of the mindset has been the success of drawing interest from Radio 1Xtra, BBC Introducing and Capital Xtra as well as the likes of New Music Friday Denmark.

With her debut EP ‘Foreseen’, also released yesterday (4th August), the talented songstress has the belief and courage to become somebody that everyone can admire, which is why when Wonderland classified her as a rising star it was clear to see that the new track ‘All Night’ does just that…Check it out below…

Song of the Day: Complete (Remix) – Teeah (ft. Ice Prince)

TEEAH latest single, ‘Complete’, sees the East London singer and songwriter collaborating once again with London-based producer Delirious (Tinie Tempah, Lady Leshurr, and Stylo G), after they both worked together on Teeah’s previous singles, ‘Zengeh’, ‘Save Me’ and ‘So Good’.

The single features BET Award winning and MOBO Award nominated Nigerian rap star Ice Prince, who comes along for the slow-burning R&B ride, with Teeah taking a completely different musical direction from the Afrobeats and Afrofusion vibe on ‘Zengeh’, while still showcasing her sultry soulful underpinnings.

Speaking about the inspiration for ‘Complete’, Teeah says, “We’ve all had that love for someone that makes you feel whole, and you’ll do almost anything to have that feeling around the clock, no matter where you are or what else is going on. They know that you complete them and you know that they complete you. ‘Complete’ reflects the classic conflict in my mind, between finding real love and ‘industry’ love, and the fight to hold on to what’s real. The song is also about how you complete each other in far more ways than just sexually, how the intimacy isn’t just sex, it’s more ‘complete’ than that”.

Taken from her highly anticipated forthcoming debut EP, which is due for release later this year, ‘Complete’ follows Teeah’s well-received single ‘Zengeh’ featuring BET Hip Hop Award winner and Ghanaian superstar Sarkodie. The Afrofusion joint was championed by Complex, GRM Daily, Capital Xtra, Amor Magazine, Colourful Radio, and Fame Magazine.

Song of the Day: Do You Feel Me – Alice Rowe

ALICE ROWE is making a solid name for herself as a talented singer and songwriter who is obsessed with all elements of soul, pop, jazz and r&b. Her recent release even saw radio play from a key tastemaker in the field, Capital Xtra’s very own Leah David. Alice has shown incredible ability to be innovative with her new video. The visuals for ‘Do You Feel Me’ embrace lockdown, and show strength in the demonstration of mental and physical restrictions that are touched upon in the lyrics.

Alice Rowe’s musical inspirations range from greats like Etta James, to the likes of Loyle Carner. Having unleashed her first single in 2019, her music has continued focused on a wide-ranging fusion of muses to showcase her vast vocal ability. Previous singles, ‘Phase’ and ‘Figure You Out’, showcase Alice’s dynamic personality and sophisticated lyrical composition. Having drawn in tastemakers from Radio 1Xtra and BBC Introducing, Alice looks forward to her first EP that will be released later this year, ‘Foreseen’.

The new video for Do You Feel Me exaggerates the claustrophobic conflict musicians, especially, face in times of lockdown. The track follows the story of confused identity, communication and questions surrounding the real me. A feeling of frustration and restriction is prominent in Alice Rowe’s new visual depiction. It perfectly encapsulates the real-life struggles that are magnified world-wide, showcasing epic surrealism faced for music lovers alike.
