With a hotly anticipated debut album landing in March, B&S one to watch Acantha Lang gives us a taste of what’s to come with her deeply melodic lighters (or phones) in the air anthem, “Carry The Weight”.

This track gives a pat on the back to your senses while delivering some pep in the step for your soul. It's a slow burner in every sense of the word which builds to perfection with the aid of a plucky guitar, rich horns, understated keys and of course, Lang’s deep Southern soul sound, mixed with blues-like storytelling and oozingly confident intonation.

An artist who entertains at will, Lang’s rocketing catalogue trajectory has already drawn plaudits from all corners of the soul and r&b world. She's an artist who is equipped with an abundance of talent, who hasn’t missed a step with previous impressive 2022 releases “It’s Gonna Be Alright”, “River Keep Runnin’ ”, 2021’s standout EP “Sugar Women” and I can’t wait to see what’s next! Ladies and gentlemen this is Acantha Lang at her inspiring best, just remember where you heard it first.
