British-Indian rock artist Maya Lakhani returns with her self-produced second single WALK ALONE, released Friday 23rd April 2021.
Maya Lakhani is making waves in British rock. The artist cemented her love for the genre from an early age, playing the likes of Rough Trade East, Isle of Wight Festival, New Blood Competition, and The Camden Assembly with previous bands. With all of this valuable experience, she soon began to flourish as a solo artist.
After bursting onto the UK music scene as a solo act, Lakhani quickly began to turn heads with her atmospheric sounds. Her debut single ‘The Line’ received airplay from BBC Introducing, was featured on 3 Spotify editorial playlists, and received national UK airplay on Planet Rock with Wyatt Wendels & Radio X with John Kennedy.
Now, the artist is making her return with ‘Walk Alone’. Emotional and electric, the single inspired by the current conversations that are happening around women’s safety, the culture of victim blaming and the pure desire to walk alone as a woman without fear of attack or abuse. These deep injustices that women feel on a daily basis compelled Maya to write this song, harking to her own fears. Above fierce guitars and pounding drums, an anthemic refrain plays stating “All I want to do is walk alone”; a simple, but powerful statement.
Just like her previous single; Maya has written, recorded & produced this track entirely from her bedroom in lockdown, performing vocals & playing all the guitars. The song has already had its debut radio play on BBC Introducing, who described it as “Absolutely stunning, haunting rock”. With remarkable song-writing capability and a passion for the rock genre, Maya Lakhani is emerging as an exciting new artist who advocates for change.
