WITH SPECIAL GUESTS
MUVA OF EARTH
1 JUNE | OSLO, HACKNEY
Potent lyricism, unique musicianship & killer vocals
Australia’s Allysha Joy brings a specially curated women-led line-up to London’s Olso, Hackney for the launch of her new album and feminist manifesto Torn : Tonic.
Delivered unfiltered, straight from the soul, Torn : Tonic weaves through the multiplicity of letting go, standing tall, and creating space all at once. The album’s expansive and vivid exploration of healing examines the power that comes with accepting the complexity of change. Fluid, cross-genre, and spirited with generational stories embodied, Torn : Tonic sits at the intersection of a feminist manifesto of Joy’s momentous leap as an artist, and her exploration of what it means to be human in today’s capitalist-driven world.
Sonically, Torn : Tonic effortlessly arches across genres and is composed of shuffling broken grooves and exquisite celestial melodies. There are healthy swathes of skippy neo-soul boom bap sensibilities, entwined with stark swing-laden electronic percussion, Detroit-esque sun-saturated synths, and Antipodean bruk backbeats.
Confirmed on the line up are rising Soul/R&B artists Muva of Earth and BINA, with DJs to be announced.
Earth Cruises donates 10% of profit from all shows to carefully selected causes. This year, Earth Cruises’ charity of choice is Hackney Migrant Centre who provide support for refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants in need through the provision of free advice on immigration, welfare and health.
