Stylistic South London singer-songwriter Ojerime has been constantly impressing tastemakers with her eclectic, left-field take on contemporary R&B with tracks like “I Know Now (2004)” and “Handle” generating a lot of buzz. Now the next instalment in the lead up to her next release is new track “Moisturise“.
The Brockley starchild’s smoky vocals give off strong 90’s Brandy vibes with hints of hypnotising melodies in the mix. And when paired with an experimental blend of beats, cadence and instrumentation across the spectrum of avant-garde R&B and electro, it gives you everything you would want in a dark R&B jam. It feels like two songs fused together but it very much works.
“Moisturise” is the third track from her forthcoming EP project 4U which will be out sometime this month and will feature her three most recent singles as well as 4 more original songs. Features are kept to a minimal but that just gives you the listener more of Ojerime to savour.
