Who? Eliza Shaddad
What’s the story? In this age of instant gratification and attention deficit (witness the manic Bowie tribute by Lady Gaga at the Grammys) it's very pleasing to hear a piece of music that pays absolutely no heed to the concepts of getting to the chorus within a minute and getting to the big bit quickly. Run is the title track of half-Scottish, half-Sudanese artist Eliza Shaddad's new EP and it's a stunning piece of work, with excellently gritty production from Chris Bond. It builds and builds with an icy chill until finally exploding into life fully three and a half minutes in. Anyone who enjoyed the excellent recent album by Daughter will lap this up, while there's more than a shade of her countrymen The Twilight Sad's darkness. Hugely impressive stuff.
For fans of: Daughter, The Twilight Sad, Ben Howard
In three words: Woozy, dreamy heaven
