We’ve got another up-and-coming British (by way of the US) songbird for you today: her name is Arlissa, and she’s got a nimble voice and has garnered a ton of buzz across the pond. (You may recognize her from Nas scooping her up for a collaboration on London Records last summer.)
The 20-year-old (just like Syron!) singer has premiered her debut solo music video for “Sticks & Stones,” which she’s releasing as a single on March 3. It has a tribal, wordless hook and there’s a breezy earthiness to her arrangement and vocals. The video matches that organic feel, taking place in the swamps of Louisiana, with a real Kate Bush “Wuthering Heights” feel, minus all the manic prancing. Check it out up top.
