UK neo soul duo Alfa & Emmavie drop the sultry Epoch EP.
My love for Soundcloud continued to grow after I uncovered another beauty of a song: this rendition of Laura Mvula’s Sing To The Moon by Alfa & Emmavie. After being obsessed with Emmavie’s vocal (her harmony game is subtlety glorious), I was excited when she announced a collaborative project with London-based producer Alfamist, titled Epoch.
An amalgamation of head bopping hip hop beats, sensuous jazz tones and sultry neo-soul melodies, Epoch is a smooth-as-fuck EP that has kept my iTunes occupied for a hot minute. (This is how I imagined Robert Glasper jamming with Floetry would sound). Released on 2nd February, the pair have been working closely together for years, having joined forces to create original music by drawing on their individual styles and the influences of taste.
I really can’t pick a favourite song (and I always have a favourite) so I’m choosing Sing To The Moon by default, as it was the first record I heard. Take your time listening to this. Ideally sip something horrendously expensive, wear a luxurious velvet robe that’s too heavy to move in and put your feet up, too.
Epoch is available for free download at ae-music.co.uk and you can also stream it via Soundcloud below.
