New music from Ego Ella May and I have to say, this project is probably her best work. Not to take anything away from her earlier work which was great, but this new EP is beautiful. Though it’s only three tracks, May showcases her songwriting ability along with her successful jazz, electro, and soul sound. I wish there were more than 3 tracks, but an album is expected later this year. The lead single ” How Far” shows how much she has grown as an artist over the years. The EP’s opening track ‘Bull,’ May’s seductive vocals float over wonky piano stabs and a sensual off-kilter bassline. Meanwhile the final song, ‘Tea and Sympathy’ a smooth and airy number, all framed by a rather sweet female vocal. The London artist had this to say about the EP:
“There are some songs I have worked on which I love so dearly but know aren’t quite right for what I wanna do with my main project, so instead of being selfish and keeping them for my ears only, I am releasing ‘ZERO’ a 3 track EP (or THE PRE-PROJECT if you will) to keep you satisfied (I hope) while I finish working on the main, which I’m aiming to get done by the end of the year.”
If you love Soul music – this will not disappoint you. Check out this EP from Ego Ella May today and support.
