Since we last featured LA's Joni Payne here, she's started to step out into the live arena, performing one or two shows across LA, all the while continuing to craft more music for her upcoming releases and developing her upcoming clothing line 'Poor Young Lovers'. While we await her "spontaneous" five-track EP release, Payne has shared a new track via her SoundCloud page, which as she writes, is dedicated to "the boy that showed me DJ Quik in his yellow car."

The majority of the record is created by building upon various layers of her own harmonies before the beat finally kicks in around 90 seconds later. Those smooth, sensual, free-flowing vocals take centre stage (as they should), making way for a beautifully delicate composition for the soul. Seriously, Joni. The world needs more of you.
