Iyamah – Cryptic Love | New Music
London based songstress Iyamah launches herself into the music as a soloist with her debut single “Cryptic Love“. After featuring a lot in the Drum & Bass circles through her writing skills and also having already performed alongside talent like Kojey Radical and Poppy Ajudha, Iyamah’s debut is a ‘return home’, back to her love and passion for neo-soul.
Her debut release “Cryptic Love” is nothing short of a remarkable entrance; painting a thrillingly vivid picture of a young woman in and out of love in her early twenties. Her jazz reminiscent vocals become intertwined with the guitar chords, baseline and soft keys of this soulful pop track.
The talent there is undeniable. Aged only 13 when she first picked up the piano and started to write songs, it seemed almost like fate that she would take to music seriously at one point, and now here we are. Channeling her icons Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu her with her debut, hopefully it’s the first of many more.
