Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Pena Hughes-John. I discovered this great artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I love the vibes of her songs.
As soon as you approach Pena Hughes-John’s music you are immediately struck by her voice.
A very high vocal timbre, for sure the hallmark of this talented artist.
In her songs she manages to mix ethnic instruments with more modern sounds, creating very original atmospheres.
Of her Ep ‘Lockdown‘, I particularly liked the sound of the drums. A dry and round snare with a slight reverb that makes it perfect for the vibes Pena Hughes-John wants to transmit us.
The melodic construction of the songs is never trivial. Surely the talent and creativity are not lacking in this artist and so we absolutely recommend her.
Lockdown is Pena Hughes-John’s EP Out Now!
Creativity and traditions mixed together!
‘Lockdown’ is the first release since 2017 and is the first EP featuring the song of the same name and ‘Dreaming of a Dream’. Refusing to be curtailed by various music pigeon-holes, the EP gives a brief insight into the world of Alutepena as a prelude to her forthcoming album.
