After recently collaborating with Giggs on her infectious track ‘Swan Song‘, emerging singer-songwriter Espahas returned with another track entitled ‘141‘ and has this time teamed up with South London rapper Bonkaz. The new track, premiered by Complex Magazine features Espa’s distinctive, soaring soul-pop vocal throughout, which describes the agonising breakdown of communication as a relationship comes to an end; “I’m dialing your number after 141, cos you won’t respond“. Co-produced by John Calvert, Tim Deal and Todd Oliver, Espa describes the song as a “signpost” for the direction of her new sound, a slight departure from the brooding, left-field productions of her previous works.
UK rap rising star Bonkaz provides an inimitable verse and serves as the response to the song’s unanswered questions. Of the track, Espa says: “141 is a mishmash, patchwork quilt of a song which so poetically maps out my journey as an artist and a human being in the last year“. Written by Espa in conjunction with Bonkaz and Todd Oliver, the track highlights her collaborative approach to music, previously working with Giggs and Erick ‘The Architect” Elliott of US hip hop collective Flatbush Zombies for ‘Swan Song‘ which gained support from BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra. The track is sure to be a hit and will elevate the young star to the next level.
