PREMIERE: ALLURI RELEASES NEW SINGLE ‘NAA TO VASTAVAA’
Great music is made everywhere in the world. Language is no barrier when you hear a song that offers some emotional or melodic connection. Alluri is a musician from Hyderabad, India who’s impossible to categorise, but his music is as grand and euphoric as anything you’d find from Arcade Fire and has a touch of Morricone too. Classical music was absorbed in his teens then he learnt guitar whilst listening to acts like Doves and Morrissey during his UK studies. Now working between India, the UK and Italy, he’s teamed up with Muse producer/mixer TommassoColliva and Italian musician Massimo Martelotta, from cult ‘cinematic Italo-funk’ band Calibro 35, on this powerful and unique music sung in the local Telugu language of Hyderabad.
After the release of ‘Endukala’, Alluri is back with his new single ‘Naa To Vastavaa’ . The track – called ‘A Trip’ in English – boasts Alluri’s powerful vocals sung in his mother tongue Telugu and is led by a thumping drum beat with a euphoric brass section and retro keyboard sounds.

With support from the likes of BBC Asian Network, Subcltr London, Smashed Vinyl, Fame Magazine, Gigslutz, and Bestival co-founder Rob Da Bank, Alluri’s unique brand of indie rock is taking the music world by storm, one continent at a time.
Live, Alluri is a force to be reckoned with. He blew everyone away at the Trans Musicales festival in France with his stellar cover of ‘Anarchy in the UK‘ by the Sex Pistols. The cover got approval by the one and only Glen Matlock – bass guitarist for the Sex Pistols – who shared the video on Twitter.
He also played the NH7 Bacardi Weekender Festival in Pune, India as well as performing further shows in India in preparation for the second album release.
‘Naa To Vastavaa’ will be out on the 21st of February 2018 via Killing Moon
