Her ‘from the heart’ lyrics and dark soulful vocal delivery always stands out in her music, and it’s this which she has been able translate effortlessly to other areas like alt pop, RnB and Trip Hop with this project. ‘Shame’ is the first track to be taken from Basheba’s new experimental EP due for release late Autumn.

“I wrote this about a real situation I went through. At the time I was writing it to vent but it ended up being one of my favourite songs I’ve written. I feel a lot of people will relate to Shame and the story behind it. It was Produced by Ogre and Runone who I’ve worked with a lot in the past. Runone sent me the beat and I instantly fell in love with it.”
