LONDON Southbank Centre / Queen Elizabeth Foyer
After late nights spent delving into the wormhole of his own mind and guitar, the south London-based artist releases his second EP, Save Us From Ourselves.
Once again, he collaborates with long-term friend, Binisa Bonner, and in Morgan Simpson (drummer from highly acclaimed math-rock band Black Midi) he’s found a true musical soulmate.
Thematically, it’s a reflection of where Wu-Lu sees himself and his people in 2019 London. Six tales tapping into racial injustice, black empowerment and self-exploration. Music runs in his veins. Raised in a creative environment built by a professional contemporary dancing mother and Afro-jazz trumpeter, his run-ins with music were early and frequent.
His 2015 debut mixtape, GINGA – featuring Stones Throw’s MNDSGN and Andrew Ashong – was a refreshing narration of the mixed-race
experience in London. The highly-approved NAIS EP followed in a similar vein of cross-genre brilliance.
