Brighton duo Anushka have shared their new single ‘Hitman’ with us, and it’s another breezy “offbeat pop song” about that guy who thinks he’s God’s gift, who we’ve all learned to loathe through our experiences with him.
Together, Max Wheeler and Victoria Port combine Soul, House, Jazz, Bass Music and Hip Hop to create sounds that have impressed the likes of Huw Stephens and Jamz Supernova at Radio1.
Extrapolating on the theme of ‘Hitman’, Anushka have said: “the track is about that one guy at school or uni, at work, or in your circle who thinks they’re something special – but really they’re not saying much at all. We’ve all met them ones. We’ve all dated them ones. This is a song for them ones.”
The band’s forthcoming EP will be announced soon, and they’ve announced a tour in March and April, with further dates to be announced. Listen to ‘Hitman’ below, and follow Anushka on Facebook for more updates.
