This month’s picks…
La Coco – Another
La Coco‘s newest offering, ‘Another‘ featuring Hawkins, is a delectable fusion of RnB, dance, and pop lyricism, another great stride from the trailblazing songstress. ‘Another’, is a heart-wrenching tale of the ebb and flow of love, and the agony and ecstasy of the fall. “A heart grows fonder for her love as time, absence and distance slowly begins to separate them, she begins to think the worst“, says La Coco. The collaboration between La Coco and Hawkins stems from a close friendship, which shines through in this track, adding to its organic honesty and depth.
Fletcher Mills – Late Nights
Fletcher Mills combines his background in Choir and Classical Piano with RnB elements and influences from Berlin electronic scene. ‘LATE NIGHTS’ is Fletcher’s summary of his sound in Berlin, a labour of love that took up most of his lockdown time.
