Undiscovered is a weekly playlist sharing our pick of the best new music from the world's most exciting emerging musicians. You heard it here first.
“Lisbon” by Safiyyah
Compelling listeners with her sultry tones, Safiyyah’s latest track is riddled with the mystique of previous releases. “Lisbon”, and its inherent nostalgia, should be on everyone’s radar this week.
“noir.” by Namani
It's been a prolific week for Namani, whose released several singles and collaborations. “noir.” and its vintaged-tinged trap beat is our pick of the bunch, personifying the dextrous flow patterns we’ve come to expect from the blossoming wordsmith.
“Nuisance” by Wax Bentayga, Tay Jordan, IGLU NOISE
Bringing back road rap with a Hennessy flavoured flow, “Nuisance” is Wax Bentayga at his best. Returning under a new pseudonym, the nonchalant rhymester who's been making waves for several years enlists Tay Jordan for an equally breezy verse and IGLU NOISE to command the buttons.
“Kick Rocks” by Chase, Clbrks
It’s becoming a journalistic trope to mention the idiosyncrasy of Clbrks’ tones, but there’s simply no one that sounds like him. Hopping on Chase’s subtle boom-bap, the rapper swerves through sumptuous soul chops and ritzy melodies at ease.
“Born By The Sun” by TIANNA
Influenced by everyone from Joy Crookes to Pip Millett, TIANNA is our newest neo-soul obsession. “Born By The Sun”, released on Go Getter Records, is a triumphant first single that sees the artist navigating shuffling percussion and hypnotic guitar riffs.
“Cast Out” by Moses Ideka
Moses Ideka is another Undiscovered debutee who's turned our heads this week. Wise in-thought but shrouded in mystery, “Cast Out” yearns for intimacy over lo-fi electronica.
“The Process” by Marie Dahlstrom, Sipprell
“The Process” is a piano-driven slice of R&B that captivates listeners in a way only Marie Dahlstrom can. Featuring the likes of Jay Prince and Kofi Stone, her forthcoming sophomore album, ‘A Good Life’, is one to keep an eye out for later this year.
“It’s Not My Fault” by Moli
Belgian pop maestro Moli is back with another dreamy single. “It’s Not My Fault” stuns thanks to its shimmering electro-pop leanings and her signature soulful vocals.
