Singer-Songwriter Swaati Brings New Track “Lighter” Under AWAL
Singer-Songwriter Swaati Brings New Track “Lighter” Under AWAL. Cambridge born, London based Singer-Songwriter Swaati teams up with Producer Duo “SubSteppers” (who have had previous works featured on Ministry of Sound & Kiss FM) on their latest track “Lighter” under AWAL (Kobalt Music Group).
The music video was filmed in Canada, with striking visuals highlighting the hypnotic theme of the song. Previously featured on BBC & KISS Fm, Swaati began her journey as an independent artist, shortly after graduating with a BA Hons in Music & Sound engineering. She has been turning industry heads with her captivating distinctive vocals and writing style, with previous works picked up by Universal Publishing Group for TV/Film. Often compared to Lykke Li, Grimes and London Grammar, listeners will definitely not be disappointed with the release of LIGHTER after her most recent release, the Slow Dance EP.
There’s definitely something different about the alluring Swaati. A singer-songwriter who stops you in your tracks, she invites you into her life through her music and her introspective observations can’t help but seep into your subconscious. At times, you feel slightly awkward – her lyrics make you feel like you’re eavesdropping on something intensely personal. Which is exactly the idea.
Born in the rural setting of Cambridgeshire, and later raised in urban London, Swaati was musically inclined from an early age; She was surrounded by old Indian folk songs and
her talent was discovered at the early age of 4, when it appeared that she was naturally gifted in playing melodies on her keyboard by ear, (having heard them only a few times, and without any formal training). She then commenced Piano lessons, classicall Indian vocal training, followed the academic path and graduated with a BA Hons in Music.
One listen to Swaati’s voice goes a long way towards defining the long and winding road that’s carried her to this point in her career. It’s all about the stories and the intimacy she brings to a very personal setting. Her carefully-crafted songs speak directly to you – carried by Swaati’s soft, vulnerable vocals and electronic accompaniment. The rich shades of colour in Swaati’s rollercoaster life experience provided plenty of inspirational material, add to this the fact that her recent release, Tone, was a long time coming – having been incubating away for years as Swaati dealt with all the cards life sometimes deals to those of fixed focus, knowing what they want. You can hear hints of frustration throughout Tone, yet without the bitterness that often accompanies it.
