Over laid back neo-soul infused production, Etta’s ‘2 Metres Apart’ shows the songstress airing her frustrations with the current lockdown rules being put in place across the UK. Her autobiographical account of current times delves deep into the mixed bag of emotions we’re all going through and can all relate to during this uncertain and exhausting period. With tracks including ‘Break My Quarantine and ‘On A Beach’, Etta manages to paint a perfect picture of what it’s like dealing with the mental strain currently being placed on all of us during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. Each track of this EP will be given it’s own video to accompany, with everything recorded and shot during lockdown over one weekend in Etta’s apartment.

With an already impressive list of collaborations including Wretch 32, Skepta, Avelino, Labrinth, SiR and more, Etta continues to rack up the accolades to reaffirm her talent as an artist. Following Etta’s headline show at Electric Brixton in 2019, the international star is returning to the spotlight with this latest EP, which illustrates her uncompromised love for Soul, R&B and writing music with historical and sentimental significance.
