Remember when I found out who Iggy Azeala was and had a minor break down about how hot she is and how great she was on that song? Well, step aside Iggy because another woman has taken your place. My new crush is EBRU, a soulful girl from the UK who caught my attention today when an interview with her popped up on my newsfeed. After some lurking around the internet, I found her cover of “Swim Good” (originally by Frank Ocean) which is just a more Motownish version of the orignal. Whereas the original is much more lowkey, EBRU’s version features more of a big band sound, which creates an interesting and much louder version of the song.
This then brought me to her newest (and seemingly first original) release, entitled “MAD”. Again, the Mowtown feel is very present throughout the entire song (and video) but EBRU is able to update the song and brings it to a place set in the 2010s. The lyrics are fantastic and extremely relatable, the video is very esthetically pleasing and the music is fantastic.
Give “MAD” a listen by watching the video below, or check out her SoundCloud account. Let me know what you think!
