We’re not sure who to blame for the fact this has been around for a couple of weeks but we’re only hearing it now, but someone is in trouble. Remember the first time you heard Seinabo Sey and were a little bit blown away and very excited? Well, you’re about to have that feeling all over again with this incredible soul track from Swedish newcomer Snoh Aalegra. This track has it all: sultry lyrics, an actually-good guest rap and a small cluster of electric guitars towards the end that make us shiver. We’ve had a frantic scurry around the internet and there are a few other tracks there, like Burning Bridges and the equally new Fire’s All Around You. There’s also a new version of Bad Things with a rap from Killer Mike which is a free download on Soundcloud. Huzzah! There could – and should – be big things for this lady.
Updated: the EP There Will Be Sunshine is now out – and is really excellent – and there’s now also a suitably moody video for Bad Things.
