There's much more to France than baguettes and great electronica, and R&B artist Praa is proof of that. Recently signed to French label Elephant & Castle (founded by producer Timsters), she has just unveiled a gorgeous track called 'Modelling Clay' which we are proud to premiere today at The 405.

Soulful and minimalist, classy and mature, 'Modelling Clay' showcases the warmth of Praa's voice backed by a luxurious ensemble of well-designed, inventive beats. The tune comes with a retro-looking, grainy video directed by Margaux Dory/Team Pepperoni whose sobriety in colour and texture matches the song perfectly.

"It’s all about being honest with who you are, not modelling on somebody or trying to be right for somebody," explains Praa. "Be yourself and speak the truth."

Praa is currently working on a debut full-length which should be out next year. Check out 'Modelling Clay' below.
