Brownswood Recordings are happy to present our newest family member, muva of Earth, an alternative jazz singer and ASCENDING SOULSTRESS from South East London. Thought-provoking debut single ‘High’ encapsulates a human’s ability to shape, transform and play with their own point of view. For example, reframing nervousness into excitement and making the most out of a negative situation, resulting in a value-creating experience that demonstrates the power of manifestation. ‘High’ by muva of Earth is released on digital format only on Wednesday 27th July 2022 via Brownswood Recordings.
Inspired by the breakdown of a relationship, the track opens with a euphoric harmony, the ethereal vocals are grounded by the chugging Hip Hop drum beat, inviting the listener into muva of Earth’s Afro-spiritual world. The lyrics carry a poignant message, “Thirsting for knowledge, thirsting for thought’ touches upon the purpose of human life on a constant quest for stimulation. “Wondering why people divide” is a reflexive moment pondering existential questions like, why is there so much turmoil in life? The vocals build up to a powerful crescendo elevating the affirmations developed throughout the song, representing an empowering realisation of life as part of a Divine whole to be appreciated and celebrated.
Growing up in both London & Kent under the influence of Amy Winehouse and Beyoncé. Moving back to London in her teenage years marks an important moment for muva of Earth as she had the freedom to immerse herself into her music, from studying at college to gracing stages around London with her soulful croons. Today, the ever-evolving being is deeply inspired by Sun Ra, Sade, Alice Coltrane and Fela Kuti. By connecting to her Yoruba roots, muva of Earth’s music explores the complexities of identity, the self and human connections over a bed of afrofuturistic rhythms and atmospheric horns.
