Hot on my list of artists to binge is Birmingham crooner Sipho and to kick off the year he’s supplied the world with beautiful content in the form of ‘MOONLIGHT PT 2’. The thing I love about demos is that the rawness of the tracks are so visceral and this comes off here in the best way possible. Sipho’s vocal is heart-wrenching and pulls you deeply into his world with conviction, allowing the listener to envision the love, sorrow and loss in 20/20.
‘MOONLIGHT PT 2’ marks the start of what should be a breakthrough year for the talent, who has previously released a string of mixtapes and promotional singles through his Soundcloud despite being an enigma in the scene. I hope to see more from Sipho in the coming year as the UK has birthed another star.
