Shihad's Jon Toogood is back with his collaboration project The Adults. We're super excited about the new single, which features two of our favourite vocalists right now – Estère and JessB.
‘Bloodlines’ is a battlecry for love from a female perspective. It draws inspiration from a Sudanese tradition known as Aghani Al-Banat, in which female musicians express resistance to patriarchy, tradition, and narrowly defined gender roles.
Jon says the track's 'based around a traditional Sudanese wedding song which talks about the women of the bride-to-be's tribe gathering together to support her as she begins her ceremonial bridal dance. It’s music to empower the bride and lend her strength.”
