Alluri – Naato Vastavaa (Track Premiere)
Take a first listen to the new track from London-based Hyderabadi songwriter Alluri
Alluri is a genre-hopping indie musician originally from Hyderabad in India who now splits his time between Italy, India and the UK, and his sound blends a host of styles and influences from across the globe together into a unique whole.
On new single Naato Vastavaa, Alluri teams up with Massimo Martelotta and Tommaso Colliva of 'cinematic Italo-funk' outfit Calibro 35 for a track performed in his mother tongue of Telugu. The result is a buoyant and exciting track with a pounding beat, retro synths and some outlandishly uplifting brass. Give Naato Vastavaa a listen in the player below or on SoundCloud.
Introducing Naato Vastavaa, Alluri says: "It is the first song in Telugu I ever wrote. It is about love and politics. It points the same fingers back at the older generation who try finding fault with the new status quo."
Naato Vastavaa (A Trip) is released on 21 Feb via Killing Moon
