Cleo Sol – “Borderline” I New Music

UK based soulful singer/songwriter Cleo Sol returns with the release of a new track “Borderline” in anticipation of her debut LP release later this year.

“Borderline” is a smooth, steadily-paced number that showcases Sol’s sultry vocal delivery. As she sings over the laid-back R&B groove, a number of references come into play including lines from Aaliyah‘s “More Than A Woman” and The Fugees’ “Ready Or Not” showing her debts to these pioneers of the genre. Cleo Sol is sure to attract some serious attention once her debut LP drops and “Borderline” is an exciting taste of things to come. Take a listen to a BBC Radio 1Xtra rip of the track below:
