Fast-rising alternative artist nayahlone returns to the soundsphere with forward-thinking track “stratford girl”.
Following his semi-viral track “sex on fire”, nayahlone emerges with the anticipated follow-up “stratford girl” showcasing the Lewisham-native’s evolution as an artist and setting the stage for his upcoming project top shelf weirdo, due December 2023. The London-based talent delivers raw, anecdotal tales that immediately define his talent — his low tone and seemingly ambivalent cadence luring the listener in only to stun with meaningful wordplay. Sitting over an atmospheric yet catchy instrumental packed with punchy percussive elements, “stratford girl” offers a glimpse into his evolving artistry.
Whilst taking influences from a range of artists such as Young Thug, Radiohead, Gorillaz, Jai Paul, Skepta and more, the twenty-year-old has been carving out his very own lane within London’s alternative scene — receiving swift co-signs from the likes of Tems, AntsLive, 24KGoldn, Idi Akz. Add to this tens of thousands of views and plays across TikTok and Spotify independently, support from BBC RADIO 1XTRA and a guest appearance on BBC RADIO 1’s Casskid’s Jersey Club Special — nayahlone’s rapid trajectory is set to continue into the upper echelons of the UK music scene.
