SOUND OF '17: ELISA IMPERILEE
Brixton-based Elisa Imperilee creates her music alongside her partner in production, Srigala. Together, their blend of neo-soul strikes the perfect balance between fresh and nostalgic, making for a sound that’s reminiscent of trailblazers Erykah Badu and D’Angelo, while incorporating the very best of contemporary UK hip-hop and R&B production.
Their latest single ‘Differences’, released last month, says it all. Elisa's soulful vocals blend with Srigala’s lilting beat to create a fresh-sounding jam. Kick back to this.
We can expect more of the same on their debut EP, which is due to be self-released in February, promising an honest reflection on experiences in love, loss and learning to express yourself.
Having already had radio play on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM, the hype for this polished production pairing is building.
