LISTEN NOW: Billie Black
Aug 10, 2015
Billie Black just wants to make you dance. The 20-year-old singer/songwriter grew up listening to ’70s disco jams with a mother who was a professional dancer, which explains why each one of her tunes on her new EP The Simple Pleasure are infused with a glistening, irresistible beat that make you want to shimmy and sway. But it’s not just the disco influence that’s evident—Black’s honey-smooth voice is gives her music a jazz-like quality which, when layered over the house and R&B production (from artists like Mura Masa and Sam Gellaitry), results in one of our favorite EPs this summer. Give it a solid listen and get to know Black before everyone else does—she’s bound to blow up.
