Rina Mushonga has released her latest single, ‘Atalanta’, the first in a series of releases leading up to her second album this autumn.

The song is named after the character from Greek mythology of the same name, who was known for her skills as a runner, hunter and fighter. Inspiration for the track apparently comes in part from Mushonga’s recent move from Holland to the UK, and the excitement she felt for the vibrancy of her new home in Peckham.

A clash of genres, reflecting her Afro-European upbringing, though settling in the edges of electronic pop, ‘Atalanta’ is a bold first offering from Mushonga’s second LP.
