// Releasing: Second Single "Walk Alone" on
Friday 23rd April, to all streaming platforms
British Indian Rock Artist, Maya Lakhani, is making waves in the rock scene with her self-produced second single. After the success of her debut single, “The Line”; which received extensive support from BBC Introducing, UK National stations Planet Rock (Wyatt Wendels) & Radio X (John Kennedy) and was featured in 3 Spotify Editorial playlists (All New Rock, New Noise, Fierce Femmes). Maya released her highly anticipated follow up single “Walk Alone” on Friday 23rd April 2021.
“Walk Alone” is a song 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. The chorus features the anthemic refrain “All I want to do is walk alone”; a simple, but powerful statement.
“Walk Alone” has already received extensive airplay, with BBC Introducing describing it as “Absolutely stunning, haunting rock” and John Kennedy picking it as one of his “X-Posure Hot Ones” on Radio X, saying “Incredible to think that this was written, recorded & produced in her bedroom on her own, it sounds amazing”. This alternative rock track features fierce guitars, strong bass, pounding drums and soaring emotive vocals.
Just like her previous single; Maya has written, recorded & produced this track entirely from her bedroom in lockdown, performing all guitars & vocals.
