Emily Litta – Not a Love Song

Emily Litta

Emily Litta is a name you absolutely should remember. Based in London, her half-Kiwi/half-Italian heritage had inspired her to travel the world and immerse herself in different musical cultures, culminating in her new material releasing across 2020.

Her latest single ‘Not A Love Song’ is an anti-love song intended to be an “unfiltered fuck you”, as Emily puts it. The record perfectly displays the unique abilities the young singer possesses that distinguish her from the ever-growing crowd. Her delivery grabs you from the outset, it’s hard to find a direct comparison. Taking influence from her love of both urban and jazz subgenres, the resulting tone and delivery of the vocals we as listeners receive is outstanding and endlessly interesting.

Despite this record being only her sixth release, it’s clear that Emily has a strong creative vision behind each of her works.

Deciding what is cool to listen to right now, is newcomer KWAYE.

Following the fluke of playing his music to an Uber driver, who happened to be a former A&R, KWAYE is set for great heights.

He combines bright neo-soul with fresh funky beats, effortlessly channeling his Zimbabwean and London roots.

Watch the video for ‘Cool Kids’ below.

It’s out now via Mind of a Genius Records.
