Unveiling the Bittersweet Beauty: Exploring Alutepena Hughes-John’s Latest Single

Aww! Our much-loved “crazy ukulele lady” Alutepena Hughes-John, who just happens to be the charismatic one whom we all adore, has made a comeback in the music scene with her latest single, “Platonic”. While she is now going solo, she is accompanied by this wonderful two-piece band comprised of Max Read on bass and Karl Thompson on the guitar.

Recorded and produced at Max Read’s Northampton studio The Lodge, “Platonic” is the piece that showcases Alutepena’s creative evolution. The track was one of her old band’s Anthroppic’s songs in 2008, going through a mighty glow-up and leaving its retro pop/rock skins for some shiny 2-Tone vibes now. This makes the sound experience a true audio journey with the blend of old and the new – something similar to getting cozy with an old friend.
