AFROPUNK PREMIERE: L.A. native Brit Manor shares funky disco-soul single ‘Wheels of Eternity’

On this fine afternoon we’re premiering a new song from Brit Manor called ‘Wheels of Eternity’ from her upcoming EP ‘Only Child’. This disco dance track might be dressed up in sequins and funky-ass bass, but lyrically, Manor poetically explores themes of reincarnation and the transcendent. “Having lost a handful of loved ones in recent years and subsequently spreading ashes on shores, I was left with accepting the implications of death and the afterlife. Which to me seems like a revolving door,” Manor tells AFROPUNK.
And while, for some, that might seems a bit gloomy, when people who impact our lives leave us, there’s always something worth celebrating that remains. “In the face of the monumental deaths in music this year, I am still beyond thankful they lived to openly share themselves with the world and make art that transcends time and space because they can now live within us, personally and completely. Death is the only guarantee, so we might as well celebrate all the way to the pearly gates.”
Brit Manor’s ‘Only Child’ EP debuts May 20th, pre-order a copy right over here.
