Today’s introducing artist is a singer-songwriter from Walthamstow who has been circulating in music circles for some time now, but with her latest release seems ready to gain some traction on her own.
Her name is Elan Tamara and the track in question is My Eyes; a jazzy piano based tune that fans of Laura Mvula in particular might like. Having studied ethnomusicology at SOAS, University of London, played with the likes of Tirzah and Toro Y Moi and featuring Georgia on percussion and Kwes on bass and production duties, Elan’s music comes ready-stamped with pedigree – and it shows. My Eyes, a song about a long-distance relationship is far from an obvious pop banger but listening to it is an absorbing experience, nonetheless. “You knew just what to do,” sings Elan. You do, don’t you? Take a listen and keep an eye and ear out for this clearly talented individual in the future.
