This Sheffield born singer, with Irish, Indian and Malawi based roots is relatively unknown now, but in 2014 everyone will know her. If you’re wondering why I can make such a bold statement, it’s because it’s a fact, she is an epic talent. When I say that I mean she is on power with the likes of Adele or Florence and the Machine. If you love really soulful singers who could give some of the Mo-town greats a run for their money then Charlotte OC is for you.
Her EP is a cut back, broody, yet haunting beautiful. Inspired by a trip to one of Berlins most infamous night clubs, the Berghain night club, her current EP, colour my heart will suck you in from the first beat. In a radio 2 interview she described the experience as Hellish but found herself entranced upon hearing Bon Iver lyrics over a beat which helped her come to this sound which drives her EP.
Every time I went to listen to her EP I couldn’t get past its title single, the song was just too good, it sucked me in over and over again. But when I got past track one the repeat happened with each new track, with only 4 songs its taken me 5 days to get through the EP, that’s just how good it is.
If you like what I have said you can download her music here.
We are expecting big things from this young lady and 2014 looks to be her year.
