Little Simz may have only released her debut album A Curious Tale of Trials + Persons in September, but the young UK artist is already releasing new music, and there's no possible way that could be a bad thing.
Already boasting a huge output (she dropped eight mixtapes between 2013 and her debut LP), Little Simz has well and truly established a uniquely powerful and recognizable identity for herself. Along with artists like Leikeli47, she's heralding in a brand new wave of nonchalantly confident and unbelievably talented female MCs.
The new track features her steely under-the-radar flow, rhythmically spot on and lyrically gripping. The sparse and jarring backing rhythm breaks up the verses with dramatic, varied percussive sounds, and the occasional instrumental flicker here and there. But for all the noises and effects that the rhythm section throws at her, I simply cannot move my attention away from her unrelenting flow. What. A. Track.
Easily one of my favorite artists right now, everybody should pay attention to Little Simz.
