I’ve been keeping an eyeball on Atira ever since they dropped their single ‘Flow‘ back in 2010. Played their track over and over again when I was on the radio back then. People just kept requesting it every single time!

Now I knew Atira was in the UK, recording their next album, and I was patiently waiting till they announced the release date. But instead of giving the release date, they dropped the news on us, they will be performing live from Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in the UK! Streaming in HD to your computer, tablet or smartphone next Thursday, May 30th.

I’ll be there for their ultimate online backstage show, question is, will you? ‘Cause you can still get your FREE VIP backstage access at atiralive.com. And while the online live show is still a couple of days away, find out why I got hooked with their flow:

TDG: Can I borrow 20 bucks?

Melissa of Atira: Yeah… Only if I can borrow 50 bucks? Haha.

TDG: Can you describe the sound of Atira in one sentence?

Atira: The new album has sounds reminiscent of classic retro funk blended with some good old RnB combined with a modern twist. I would say the music is super sassy with an unmistakable pop edge.

TDG: What are your roots?

Atira: I have always loved music, song writing and performing. From a young age I was bopping around and writing lyrics inspired by my experiences. My Grandmother was a huge influence in introducing me to music and use to take me to watch her sing in the choir! I loved that. I studied music at university and started gigging in bars from about 16.

TDG: Something a lot of people don’t know, and even I didn’t know when I discovered you back in 2010 when you dropped your single ‘Flow‘, Atira not a solo project but you’re a team together with Chris. How did you guys meet?

Atira: Ultimately ‘Atira’ is my alter ego but yes ‘Atira’ is a team project. Myself and Chris met about four years ago through a mutual friends and clicked instantly through music. We both had similar music influences and shared the same vision for what we wanted to create. We both wanted to write timeless and honest songs that stand the test of time and never go out of fashion.
