Priya Ragu has debuted a new single, ‘ILLUMINOUS’.
Given a first spin as Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1 last night (3rd March), it follows up on debut mixtape ‘damnshestamil’.
Priya explains: “I believe we are all beings of light. It’s a journey that starts before we enter this world and continues while we have this human experience, and then remains after we leave this earth. I also believe that we all have this one true unique gift that could bring us back to our true selves. Once you have found that, the light within you shines so bright that you become invincible. This is how I feel at this stage in my life and with this song I want to encourage others to find that one thing. Apart from all that, it’s also a turn up song, so you know what you gotta do!”
Written by Priya with production from her brother and creative collaborator Japhna Gold, it comes alongside a video directed by Silence (Sigrid, IAMDDB, Yxng Bane), which you can check out below.
Priya Ragu is set to play London’s Scala on 21st April, before heading to The Great Escape, Primavera and End of The Road across the summer.
