Debut Single “movies & music” from New, Emerging Artist ‘a_shes’ is ready to debut in Formula Indie the 11th March

a_shes is an emerging artist
based between London and
Cambridge. Born in 1997 and
raised in the Malaysian side of
Borneo, he moved to the UK for
university with the aim of
pursuing a career in academia.
However, the COVID pandemic
made him realise that he was
slowly giving up on all the dreams and aspirations he had as a young teen – the
older he got, the further away he felt from the bright-eyed and hopeful person he
once was. Not knowing how much longer he would be able to continue residing in
the UK, he finally decided to give music a try while balancing it alongside his
graduate studies in order to satisfy the ambitious teen still lingering within him.
About the track
Produced by London based Palestinian producer Imad Salhi and written by a_shes
himself, “movies & music” is a tribute to the memories and experiences he never had
as a teen but always dreamt of having. Throughout the pandemic he was overcome
with a sense of nostalgia when coming to terms with the fact that he was slowly losing
precious time and can no longer escape adulthood. Its lyrics tap into the existentialism
of late adolescence experienced by so many in his generation while drawing from
sounds associated with the romantic “tumblr teen” fantasy of the early 2010s such as
Lorde’s “Pure Heroine” and Troye Sivan’s “Blue Neighbourhood”
