A masterful and dreamy compilation of songs with a south london skins-sequel tone, KEYAH/BLU toys with ideas and realities of self love, romantic love, and friendship. Featuring tracks from her 2020 project, as well as fan-favourites such as “Sweet” and her latest single “Ring The Alarm”, Sorry, I Forgot You Were Coming (Extended Play) is KEYAH/BLU’s first full length offering to the world, encompassing her whole journey so far.
From the depths of South East London KEYAH/BLU lies at the intersection of dreamy R&B, psychedelic hip-hop and punk poetry. Rapping with vulnerable innocence juxtaposed with a raw uncensored edge, KEYAH/BLU finds an enthralling esoteric balance between light and dark in her art. With her disparate influences from across the spectrum, KEYAH/BLU marries her own ethereal harmonies and vocals underneath her hard-hitting bars to spin tales of life as a girl floating through the novel extremities of everyday life.
With just a handful of tracks to her name, KEYAH/BLU has already attracted plaudits from Pitchfork “KEYAH/BLU is fully in command, and her career has only just begun.”, The Observer (‘Hot New Tracks’) “Darkly sexy whisper rap…shivering somewhere between Tirzah and Tricky”, Crack Magazine “a 21st century artist-to-watch”, as well as gracing the front cover of Parisian magazine L’Officiel, making the BBC 6Music B List, attracting support from the likes of Mary Anne Hobbs, Lauren Laverne, Jamz Supernova, Joy Orbison, Toddla T, Huw Stephens and supporting Jorja Smith, Little Simz, Tirzah, and Yves Tumor live.
