"I'm sorry," Naomi Pilgrim giggles apologetically, as we settle down for a brief chinwag via Skype. "I haven't done many of these before". After hearing her debut track, the boisterous 'No Gun', you get the feeling that Naomi had better become accustomed to having questions directed her way because, inevitably, everybody will want to know her soon enough.

Having been guided through the choppy waters of childhood by an array of Swedish artists, as well as Björk, Sweet Nancy and Sade ("Sade, there will always be Sade"), Naomi found herself travelling to Barbados at the age of twenty one for the first time, the birthplace of her father and home to a number of unidentifiable relatives, and, oddly, something clicked. "In Barbados, I felt at home," she recalls. "I loved everything about it - the music, the food, the vibe." Certainly, the Caribbean influences are noticeable on her debut offering, a procession of flickering steel drums clashing, shuddering against prickly waves of bass, her sultry vocal oozing from every corner. The track is somewhat telling of Naomi's heritage, too; the icy, stabbing synths of Scandinavia, at odds with the fiery Bajan heat that bubbles beneath the colossal echoes of percussion.

"Pleased is the wrong word," she beams, in response to how the internet has detonated in a blast of universal acclaim and anticipation upon the unveiling of her debut single. "I think overwhelmed is more fitting."

It's certainly the boost that Naomi required. Having provided backing vocals for artists such as Lykke Li previously, slinking out from the shadows as a solo artist in her own right proved tough initially. "It was something that I struggled with at first," she admits. "I found it much, much harder because, well, if I fuck up, I fuck up my own stuff."

While the melodic elements of 'No Gun' are thoroughly impressive, it's the wordplay that I really wanted to quiz Naomi about. "I've found my soulmate, but we're screwing just for fun" is delivered with her typically lustful purr, but does it hide a darker, more personal aspect to the track? It's a notion that Pilgrim is quick to deny. "No, it's not autobiographical. I write about everyday things, parts of life that people can identify with." She pauses, choosing her words carefully. There's a playful glint in her eye. "I like to twist them." Indeed, it's this subtle contort of a familiar concept that has so many of us hooked.

With a debut EP release imminent, it appears that our infatuation with Naomi Pilgrim shows little sign of subsiding. You'll struggle to unearth a more exciting talent.
