This week brought the multi-faceted artist behind House of EL, Kieron McIntosh, a dynamic musical talent with several strings on his finely tuned bow, to the forefront. You can find him writing and producing under his record label WUNDERKIND where he has previously collaborated with the likes of Emeli Sande, Plan B and Jimmy Napes to name a few and he is also a very talented jazz trumpeter. So with all of this considered, when you discover he has debuted his own material you expect the best - and it doesn't disappoint.
The song, Elijah, displays EL's talent as a producer with its celestial sounds blended in melancholy. His deep vocals do well in creating a beautifully balanced track. With the accompaniment of Laura Mvula and Jay Prince who bring in their own unique flair without taking over, this song filled me like a well balanced meal, leaving me with hope of a great new contender to the British music scene in 2018.
I can't wait to hear more! Check the video out below:
