Beautiful murk; the beats swing low under shadowed carousels of synth melody adourned with noir R&B flare and vocal sex ooze. A genre spanning beat approach that draws on industrial and forward thinking "slow jams", infecting the buzz with a consistency of sultry head bobbery that makes for highly addictive listening. The debut, Sunday's Best (produced by Alexander Spit) is a start-to-finish gem. A new EP is expected for early January 2013 and will delight listeners if she stays true to earlier form.
