Rising singer/songwriter Mahalia is one of the most exciting artists to come out of the UK in quite some time. A wonderful songwriter with a killer voice that’ll warm your heart with its smooth tones, the Birmingham based artist has continually impressed with her infectious pop tracks doused in R&B. With a collaboration with Rudimental and a number of EPs under her belt, the 18 year-old recently released her magnificent debut single “Sober” earlier this year.
It’s the song that she absolutely nails on the very first take of her COLORS performance. Opening with a simple but equally arresting boom-bap beat which carries an air of nostalgia as it takes you back to those classic R&B tunes, the track is brought to life by Mahalia’s exquisite vocals. What makes this track so special is its simplicity, producer Maths Times Joy pens the perfect backdrop to allow Mahalia’s golden tones to really shine through.
