Pop-powerhouse LU KALA returns to the forefront of innovative pop music with her new, feel good track 'No Smoke', co-written with David Charles Fischer.
'No Smoke' is a funky dance track with a banging beat and catchy lyrics. Its in your face pop perfection, paving the way for female strength and LU KALA is ready for the main steam with her bold and powerful image, rich vocal and melodic sound. It's hard to sit still whilst listening, you'll have this song in your head for days on end.
The track is a nod to the dance-inciting vibes of creatives like Dua Lipa and Jess Glynne and LU's defined and distinct style is scattered throughout the track. Weaving influence from pop-rock, electronic, and indie genres this new LU KALA track pairs a mighty message with a fun, lighthearted sound. Not to mention her killer vocals take it one notch further.
"'No Smoke' is my fun yet ruthless anthem. I'm tired of letting bullshit men think they can play me. I hope everyone who listens to this song will stick to their standards & cancel anyone who tries to waste their time."
LU immigrated to Canada with her family at 3 years old and was gifted with a talent for writing striking pop tracks. She has written numerous hit tracks for independent musicians and even one for R&B star Jennifer Hudson.
While achieving songwriting success, behind the lyrics was a voice waiting to be released, a voice that didn't conform to the vocal style producers assumed they'd hear. Instead her sound - raw, intensely emotive and mercurial with an ability to lean into rock, soul and pop, at will - defied it.
"With me being both black and plus size, I think people expect a very specific voice and style. And while I love those songs, I express myself differently,"
