NPR has been releasing some dope Tiny Desk Concerts lately. So far we’ve seen BADBADNOTGOOD and Run The Jewels absolutely kill their sets. Next up on the roster is experimental UK lyricist, Little Simz.
Despite her really coy and smiley demeanor, Little Simz blew minds away with her Stillness in Wonderland album– her adaption of the Disney classic, Alice in Wonderland. It’s an aggressive and personal self-expressive album, ripe with banger after banger. The giggly Little Simz looks innocent but her lyrics pack a punch due to her sassy bars and candid personal reflection. It’s an album I didn’t even know I needed in my life.
Having received thumbs up from artists like J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar, and also being compared to the legendary Lauryn Hill, Little Simz is well on her way to being noticed as an amazing artist in music. You can find her with the likes of Kehlani, who she’s collaborated with, and also, breakout singer-songwriter Bibi Bourelly.
Watch the toned down, swaggered out renditions of her songs with amazingly cool Brookyln band, Phony Ppl, above and check out her Stillness In Wonderland short film below!
