“You play me like you would your Gameboy”, can’t you just imagine that line lifted straight out of a sassy 90s R&B track, helped no doubt by that minor key violin riff. It’s ear-catching pop music that is unlike the current landscape composed mainly of straight-up electronic, indie rock and hip hop music. This is a girl with something of value to add and a great voice with which to do it.
Can we also take a moment to appreciate the way Remi introduces his rap – “I feel you Miss Rose / I have the same thing with this chick / I had to tell her like this.” Love it.
She’s touring nationally off the back of her upcoming album, which will also features collabs with Chrome Sparks, M-Phazes, and George Nicholas from Seekae.
Hometown: Sydney, Australia.
Upcoming album: Intra, out 4 March 2016.
Sounds like: Bear with me here. Take this chance to go back and listen to Lindsay Lohan’s “Rumours” – more specifically, the first 5 seconds of it. I spent about half an hour agonising over what “Playing With Fire” reminded me of and the realisation of it being “Rumours” was immensely satisfying to say the least.
Exclusively hand-picked just for you, by Jane.
