Shingai - Coming Home
Shingai, the legendary front woman and bassist from The Noisettes ignites a new chapter with her brand new single ‘Coming Home’, taken from the forthcoming debut solo EP, ‘Ancient Futures'. Described as a “living, breathing, manifestation of Rock & Roll” (Rolling Stone), Shingai is distinguished for her mesmerising and dramatic performances.
Born in London and of Zimbabwean descent, Shingai has taken inspiration for ‘Coming Home’ from her uncle, the legendary musician Dr. Thomas Mapfumo, and his classic Zimbabwe hit ‘Shumba’. The song represents the journey of Zimbabwean music, whose legacy she’s taking into the future. Original synth parts take on mbira and guitars to create infectious hooks, allowing Shingai’s vocals to soar into an auditory league of their own.
