Aisha Chaouche had an unsettled childhood in Swansea, before moving to Bristol to study music.
It's here she found her voice - a songwriter of real strength and subtlety, her work speaks of empowerment, of coming to terms both with her past and her possibilities.
Debut single 'I'll Lose My Head' will be released on May 5th, a two-part introduction that allows fans a glimpse into the world of Chaouche. She explains:
"The overarching theme of my songs is 'healing'. Collectively my songs contribute to a greater understanding of particular issues I found overbearing and traumatising as a child and young adult. Each song is dedicated to a memory or experience that has come from a negative source that’s ultimately been turned into a strength."
Clash is able to premiere the flip, and 'My Friend' is the sound of escape. The first song she ever wrote, "it’s about letting go of bad shit and discovering beauty beyond my own experiences through amazing people I met."
