Shortlisted in the BBC Sound 2022 and supported by tastemaker airplay from Radio 1, BBC Asian Network, 1Xtra and 6 Music, Priya Ragu is poised to achieve a major breakthrough.
The next step in her ascent comes with the blissful new single ‘Illuminous’, which elevates the joyous Raguwavy vibe that made her debut mixtape ‘damnshestamil’ so special. Priya’s Tamil heritage once again proudly takes centre-stage, most notably in her distinctive vocal cadence which weaves effortlessly through silky R&B and vibrant electro beats to create a unique sonic tapestry. The song is again the result of her creative collaboration with her brother and producer Japhna Gold.
‘Illuminous’ is a bold statement of intent as Priya prepares for a big year ahead. She will play her biggest headline show to date at London’s Scala on April 21st, while her burgeoning summer festival schedule includes The Great Escape, Primavera, and End of the Road.
