Rising artist Alana Sukul has released her new single ‘Be Friends’, marking her third release since making her debut last year. The funk-pop track is tinted with R&B influences, and sees Alana’s dreamy vocals lend themselves to infectious melodies. Alongside upbeat and polished production, Alana delivers undiluted candour and vulnerability through her lyricism, as she laments a lost friendship. She says of her new single: “Friendship breakups can sometimes hurt a lot worse than your typical romantic breakup, I hope this song will help listeners to grieve over the loss by dancing it out.”

Experimenting with different styles and genres, Alana’s sound cannot be boxed in – but what does remain consistent is her deeply personal and therapeutic lyricism. This young songstress is certainly one to keep on your radar.
