After giving us a taster live at This Is Wired in East London a few weeks ago (watch a performance here), West London-hailing Soul rising star Obenewa has given us the green light to debut the first track from her forthcoming EP B.
The project which began as an idea three months ago sparked by events in her life, is an a capella outing utilising her vocals not only as the lead, but as the instrumentation on the songs, basically everything you hear is from her mouth. The EP was then written in 5 days and then recorded in 3 days. Intentionally created in that way to make sure she captured that snapshot of her life and kept it honest and pure.
The first single “Make.Believe.” is a poignant and emotive piece, which in her words is “About not wanting to let someone go, but you know that you have to and for just a moment you’re asking them to pretend, to make-believe that they will still be around.”
Listen to “Make.Believe” SClusively below…
Look out for the official video which will be released in a few days with the EP following in July.
