We’re immensely proud to have released ‘Birds‘ by Tongue Fu, which is a collaboration featuring Salena Godden, Vanessa Kisuule and Hollie McNish. This is a digital-only release, with 100% of the profits going to Black Minds Matter UK.

The track is part of a Tongue Fu project – produced by Chris Redmond – which was supported by Arts Council England’s COVID-19 Emergency Response Funds.

We commissioned Leeds-based artist Saifur Rehmaan Manzoor-Khan to create the illustration for the artwork, and Liz Counsell edited the video. If you’re interested in featuring us on a site or in a publication, the press release is here.
