Actor, musician and West End performer Arun Blair-Mangat embarks upon a whole new phase of his career this week, with the unveiling of his gloriously uplifting debut single, Diving Back In – a cute and sassy celebratory anthem, that radiates with positivity and self-love.
Old streets, seem new…
Co-written by Arun, along with Jennifer Lucy Cook and Peter White, the super upbeat track lyrically paints a picture of what a night out on the town might look like post lockdown – with its playful, and flirtatious opening verse detailing the singers arrival back on the scene, before transitioning into an uber catchy, sing-along chorus that manages to stay lodged in ones brain after just one listen.
“I’m diving back in, not falling, but jumping; not looking for the love of my life…”
As his first offering of original music, Diving Back In gives listeners an exciting insight into Arun’s identity as an innovative and contemporary recording artist in his own right, by seamlessly fusing together the majestic sounds of 70’s disco, with sonic elements of classic 90’s pop, to create an undeniable top tier bop, that looks set to go down a storm in clubs and bars up and down the country this autumn/winter season!
