Introducing Manchester-based songwriter and vocalist ZULA (aka Freak Slug) with their brand new single titled “Cleo Patra“, which is taken from her recently released new EP SKIN44 that is out via Berlin-based independent label Havêa Records.
The new single and EP from ZULA comes on the back of the success of their recent singles “Elevate Me” and “Let’s Go Out”, with the 6-track project offering us an eclectic mix of electronic music and R&B that is driven by ZULA’s sultry vocal tones and supported by collaborator glue70’s off-kilter synths and percussive grooves.
According to ZULA, the songs on the project were created in the early hours of the morning after late nights, and born out of experimental experiences and inspired by her home city of Manchester. The project carries some of tehei catchiest and most refined works to date.
Speaking about the inspiration behind “Cleo Patra”, ZULA says, “‘Cleo Patra’ is a referential play on Egyptian history, where female energy in its purest form was highly regarded and worshipped in society. It is an industrial, moving love song, for those wishing to be adored by their admirer“.
The Manchester-based musician comes with recent support from the likes of Complex, XLR8R, Rinse FM, Reprezent Radio, BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and 6 Music, with new Grammy Award nominee Arlo Parks also supporting one of her recent songs “Cute”.
