When Ash Shakur isn’t working with the art collective he co-founded, Art Life Central, the London-based multi-faceted artist is dropping vibrant music like his latest single, Underwater Love.

Armed with a slew of beachside metaphors and references, a slick Shakur glides and sails with a playful wave over the old-school inspired beat with smooth jazz elements. If there’s a special someone in your life who doesn’t quite know it yet, Shakur’s got you.

“This record is about an interest in someone you really really dig. It takes me back to my youth when there was a girl I used to like but wouldn’t say, everybody knew it but her. I used a lot of sea references as a metaphor to tell this narrative. I want you to have fun with this record and to feel like you’re on holiday on the beach somewhere… And if you dig someone, then let them know so it’ surfaces!”
