Swedish Gambian Rising Star LISA CONTA Returns With NEVER ANSWER Produced By DJ IRONIK

“I think we all can relate to that feeling when you really need to reach someone and they're not picking up. 'Never Answer' is about the frustration and irritation you feel when you’re constantly calling someone who’s not picking up your call”.

London-based Swedish Gambian singer, songwriter and model Lisa Conta recently made her debut in the music world with a sultry R&B track entitled Difficult. After this sensational start, a month ago, she was supported by the likes of BBC Radio London, Foundation FM and Reprezent Radio. Since then, the singer is planning a comeback with her very first EP, of which we do not know the release date.

While we wait until then, she has offered us a catchy new house track called Never Answer. This brand new single was produced by UK veteran DJ Ironik, the same one who was nominated for a MOBO Award a few years ago.

That’s not all as it was also co-written by Roses Gabor, a well known name in the world of electronic soul. Indeed, she has already worked with big names like Gorillaz, SBTRKT and Machinedrum.

With bass that punctuates the music alongside the synths, Never Answer has everything to become the track we can listen to on repeat this summer. It is over this sunny melody, with pop tones that Lisa Conta makes us discover her so particular voice, through relatable lyrics.

Lisa Conta speaks about her inspiration behind this new title: “I think we all can relate to that feeling when you really need to reach someone and they’re not picking up. Never Answer is about the frustration and irritation you feel when you’re constantly calling someone who’s not picking up your call”.

Passionate about singing from a young age, Lisa Conta comes straight from a musical family that have proven themselves. His grandfather, Demba Conta, is one of the biggest music stars in Gambia, and his father Eddie Conta is known for hits such as “Dongoo” and “Manyoo”.

Inspired by R&B icons like Brandy, Whitney Houston, and Aaliyah, Lisa Conta was able to develop her musical skills throughout her teenage years. And now we are eagerly awaiting his EP, which should be released at the end of the year.
