British Indian Rock Artist, Maya Lakhani (My-ah La-khan-ee), released her highly anticipated self-produced 4th single “Torn In Two” on Friday 13th January 2023 9AM, a fierce & energetic alt rock track. It has already received airplay & support from BBC Radio 1 with Alyx Holcombe & BBC Introducing with Melita Dennett, ahead of its' official release. It is currently on Spotify's Fresh Finds Rock editorial playlist. Just like her previous singles; Maya wrote, recorded & produced this track entirely from her bedroom, performing all guitars & vocals. Maya learnt to do this out of necessity in lockdown, but has fallen in love with producing her tracks in this way. The song was mixed by Grammy winning engineer Adrian Bushby (Muse, Foo Fighters). “Torn In Two” is a song about feeling continually conflicted about a person, and battling between forgiving or just forgetting entirely. "I am torn in two, with you".
Maya has been making waves in the rock scene with the success of her debut releases “The Line”, “Walk Alone” & "Nightfall"; which received extensive support from BBC Introducing & BBC Asian Network and UK National stations Planet Rock (Wyatt Wendels) & Radio X, where John Kennedy chose Maya as one of his “X-Posure Hot One’s”. Her music was also featured in Spotify editorial playlists and received coverage from Rolling Stone Magazine and leading British Asian newspapers Asian Voice & Eastern Eye. Maya is excited to release her latest offering “Torn In Two”, a song that encapsulates her unique brand of dark stylish self-produced bedroom rock. For fans of Garbage, PJ Harvey & Lana Del Rey.
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.
