Meet Alyusha, an elegant songstress who weaves the sounds of traditional Japanese, classical and jazz, with exciting sonically charged electronics.

As a writer and composer, the London-based musician also arranges the music and strings, alongside being a classically trained opera singer.

Making her entrance with enchanting debut, 'Black Butterfly', a trip-hop rhythm runs below effortless vocals that soar alongside a sweeping string arrangement. As a melodic modern day anti-love/pro strength ballad, thoughtful lyricism glides with slick R&B beats. It's cinematically bold and spills heart and soul.

Lifted from the forthcoming debut EP Paper Tiger, produced by the team behind Lion Babe, Paloma Faith and Maverick Sabre, it cocktails an interesting mix of style and flair.
