North London soulstress Mega stuns on her melodic debut single ‘Chariot’. It’s a vibrant, expansive track built upon glassy guitars and bold beat-work. Mega’s influences bleed into her work, with Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill and Chaka Khan cited as noteworthy building blocks for the British newcomer. The vocal is effortlessly powerful, with stunning dynamic control and a rich, emotive delivery.
“Chariot was co-written with and produced by the amazing Jonny Hockings. One of my favourite sessions to date – straight from the heart. I stumbled across a voice memo of this beautiful rhythmic repetitive acoustic melody on Jonny’s phone and fell in love with it. We began to sing and then had a discussion about writing from the perspective of having something/someone bigger singing this to us. For me, I envisioned the creator of the world. It felt like it would be really nice to write something that we would like to hear.” – Mega
