About Ifi Ude:
‘Weapon of Love‘ is the new single from Ifi Ude, set for release on the 26th of October via New Moons, a new imprint of the Killing Moon group. The multitalented artist, of Nigerian-Polish descent, recorded and produced the new single in Baltic Studios in Haggerston with Jack Chown (Jessie Ware, The Rolling Stones, Liam Gallagher, Years & Years). Accompanying the new release will be a video documenting an artistic collaboration with East London street artist and muralist Jim Vision, who has worked on murals for Marvel Studios, I AM LEGION (Foreign Beggars / Noisia) and Lazy Habits. Jim has a unique painting style, and his work often features thought provoking subjects, travelling across the continents to create authentic mural videos.
Ifi Ude co-hosts a TV show in her home country of Poland and is recognized as one of the most innovative artists in the Polish music scene, having received a Fryderyk nomination for her debut album in 2013 (which she crowd-funded and produced herself). ‘Weapon of Love’ is the next track from a forthcoming EP, following the first single, ‘Love Is Stronger’, that was released in January 2018 on a compilation album with Killing Moon. ‘Weapon of Love’ is a delectable musical melting pot, mixing trip hop with afro-beats, turning groove and bass laden by the chorus, where Ifi’s electronic dynamism comes truly into fruition. ‘Weapon of Love’ is a carefully crafted, certified avant-pop anthem.
