The second solo track from Dayo Olatunji aka Ms D, following the exotic sounding Shoot Me With The Truth is My Pen, a song which may or may not be about a biro. Injected with moments of tight slamming drum and bass beats, soulful depth in the vocal and a pop sensibility (those woah-oh-oh’s sound a bit Rihanna like perhaps) this sounds like a potential radio big-hitter. In fact it’s already made its way on to the BBC Radio 1 Xtra playlist and we could quite easily see this cross over onto daytime Radio 1 itself. Ms D claims influences as far ranging as Imogen Heap and Taylor Swift to Rascal Flatts and Brandy and on the evidence of the two solo tracks we’ve now heard from her (as well as previous songwriting efforts with the likes of Wiley and Iggy Azelea) it’s clear that whilst soul may be her roots, she spreading her musical branches far and wide when it comes to creating her sonic palette.
If you fancy seeing Ms D live your next chances are at Gold Dust club at Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen on March 27th, alongside Gossling, or in April where she’s out supporting Angie Stone. My Pen is taken from taken from her forthcoming Resonance EP on Killing Moon Records.
