It wasn't that long ago when Alternative Fruit featured Shiraz with her song Done The Dirty. Since releasing the track, this young and talented British-Israeli clearly has a bright musical future. With a voice like that, what's stopping her? Now it's time to bring her back into the spotlight as she brings us Simmer Down. This new number works on that same hip-hop easy going sound which we have learned to associate with her voice. The cover art is awesome, the intricate yet simply iconic imagery tells us that we can expect a similar thread in the sound. It was chosen by means of a fan write-in on Twitter, which I took part in of course.
The song opens with an easy-going rhythm composed with a plucked string melody and a non-invasive yet hook laden drumming. It's got pace, and there's energy in the bars however the mood is set on calm and the lyrics invite us to relax. Catchy chorus lines keep coming back to reassure us that we're hearing the song right, and this quality singer has got us covered. The song is not yet out, but keep an eye on her Spotify profile for up and coming titles.
