We’re seeing a massive pick-up in Soul, Jazz and R&B in the UK, but it’s not always homegrown..
Italy has a rich, cultured musical background. But it rarely covers Soulful R’n’B akin to Jordan Rakei or Tom Misch. It’s the main reason, Italian duo MwS state for moving to Blighty on the day we voted to leave the E.U.
“The Brexit decision made us feel a bit uneasy about heading to the UK only at the beginning.. We have a lot of faith in London, which we know is a very open city that somehow needs people from all over the world. We knew that this was the place for our music so we had to make it happen regardless”
Since moving here, the duo have released their debut EP ‘Swim’, a stunning exploration of soul, jazz and nu-form pop that’s been supported by Clash Magazine, Complex and featured on a number of influential Spotify playlists. Now, the Italian dup return with a poolside, smooth piece of work ‘Island’. Listen below or on Spotify
