On the London scene, there’s a name that keeps on buzzing stronger and louder with every release: ONUR. The 23-year-old singer/songwriter/producer started making waves a bit more than a year ago with his debut single Beamin’ which earned him an unexpected but well deserved spot in Martin Garrix‘ playlist. Always keen on challenging himself by exploring new sounds & blending genres, the British artist of Turkish descent made it clear that he was here to say with the debut EP A Millennial Rhapsody in spring, whose lead-single Beautiful Time totals 450 000 streams on Spotify!

To finish the year with a bang, ONUR released another brilliant and explosive track: What U Do. Co-written & co-produced with a little help of Max Marlow (known for his work on Declan McKenna’s Brazil), this pop/rnb earworm will make your heart (and your mouth!) sing. The song stems from the simplest sentiment – love – which ONUR managed to depict perfectly, with a bold and intricate sound paired with very raw and organic visuals, courtesy of director Meg Wilford“The whole idea of this video was to capture the good parts of what makes a special bond between two people. I really wanted to portray it in the simplest and most organic way as I could so that everyone could relate to the sentiment behind the song”, he reveals.

Keep an eye out for ONUR on Spotify & social media because this name will surely be one to remember!
