Following the release of lead single from her Lagoon Vol. II EP, "Black Lolita", South London singer-songwriter Michelle O Faith is back to grace us with her truly imitable voice on "Eskimo Summer."
In the same vein as "Black Lolita" the track kicks in with a mystical air to it before high-octane vocals wash over with the type of powerful cinematic reverberations that really work your speakers. "Eskimo Summer" may be a winter release but it oozes with fiery summer vibrancy. Producer and film composer Neil Athale exploits O Faith's trained opera singing background to unless the artist's full dramatic pitch range. The end result is an omniscient, dazzling and entrancing listening experience that tackles a typical love story narrative but is instead unhindered by tepid song constructs. O Faith shares, "I wanted to write a song about love that is lost but never forgotten; and perfect for what it was, for all that it was, for however long it lasted. I wanted Eskimo Summer to sound like the end of summer - but the most magical summer of your life. There are songs that make you nostalgic for something you can't put your finger on; for something you perhaps haven't experienced.. or have experienced but never realised you carried with you. That's what I wanted Eskimo Summer to do."
O Faith's whole Lagoon trilogy series is being backed and funded by the highly prestigious MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Awards, this is just one example of her raw unadulterated talent.
