Been waiting a while to hear this gem – the debut EP from Bristol-based singer, Ngaio. Sublime neosoul vibes from an artist who is possibly best known for her work as part of Eva Lazarus’ Afronaughts. She has enlisted Baileys Brown for the production and he has brought four nice beats for her to work her magic on. The result is a quartet of laid back, but powerful songs, which make for a strong debut record. The EP is out now on KonichiWahGwarn Records and you can download it here, or stream it below.
