Some exciting talent emerging from Manchester here. Manta is a singer-songwriter who’s eclectic style blends elements of bedroom-pop with indie and hip-hop.

With influences ranging from Kenny Beats, Dominic Fike to Easy Life, Manta is a shaping up to be a name well worth watching out for in the coming year.

“I wrote ‘Dream World’ to show how stuck I felt when studying architecture; I had bigger dreams and aspirations than to be stuck in an office all day. I wanted to produce, play shows, and start releasing music, but I felt confined to a life I was not passionate about. My music is a big cooking pot full of everything I am into.”
