Latir - Am I Allowed To Say I've Missed You

Latir – Am I Allowed To Say I’ve Missed You

Boasting a unique blend of Hip-hop RnB with a nostalgic 80’s soul/pop sound is Gambian-born and now UK based musician Latir. Using heavier frequencies and heavier drums alongside synths as opposed to his usual love for hip-hop sounds and indie folk guitars, his new single “Am I Allowed To Say I Missed You” is a representation of an ongoing musical journey that’s developed through surroundings. 

From growing up in suburban London with his musical family, playing in a Gambian-based choir and his father being a conga player, Latir progressed with his musical surroundings at school. Today, his sound leans towards inspirations from artists such as Kanye West, Nick Hakim, Puma Blue and King Krule. Talking on his inspirations and motivations behind his new single, Latir writes “I really want to make music that affects people, inspired by our moments and memories… whether in love, subjects like anxiety, depression, social justice matters, etc… My aim is to transcend people now and forever, to aid and relate, and to be the sonic backdrop to all our most prevalent feelings  in the most nostalgic, melancholic, wavy way ever… If I’ve managed to transcend these feelings either live on stage or in someone’s headphones/speakers, then my purpose has been served”.

“Am I Allowed To Say I’ve Missed You” is out now on all streaming platforms.
