Taking its cues from a Maya Angelou poem, ‘Human’ is the explosive new track from London’s ECKOES. Co-written and produced by Dee Adam, there’s a lot going on in the track, which veers between FKA Twigs style future electronica, reggae guitar stabs, and a pulsating tribal rhythm. ECKOES didn’t set out trying to be explicitly political, but the life-affirming joyousness of it all comes on like a celebration of music and all that’s good about humanity in these troubling times. ECKOES is currently one of the most exciting artists making music in the capital and for her the sky’s the limit now that this hardcore banger is out on the table.
