It feels far too long since I've had a Music Monday feature so let me introduce you to Thandi, a singer/songwriter, musician, producer and keys player/backing vocalist for the band Club Kuru from London.
Thandi has spent the last few years building up a very impressive profile as an instrumentalist and singer supporting other emerging artists. Now, however, it's time for Thandi to take the limelight as she drops her own unique writing and production style with her debut track ‘Forgetful’.
‘Forgetful’ is written by Thandi and co-produced by Thandi and Graham Godfrey who is the drummer, producer and writer for Club Kuru. From the very beginning the track kicks in with a self assured heavy funk drum break that is then the palette for layered, angelic floating vocal harmonies providing a dreamy insight into Thandi’s world.
If I could describe 'Forgetful' in one way it would be: confident! With Thandi's soaring falsetto, mixed with slick RnB percussion, with a funk-infused sound running throughout, it is truly such a statement first single that brings in all of Thandi's multifaceted musical talents.
The next single Thandi will release 'Cameo' follows 'Forgetful' perfectly with a hypnotic static beat that fuses with icy synths to create something totally unique to everything else going on musically right now. In fact the production is so super sleek it's some of the best I've heard in a long time!
If you love what you hear it would be amazing if you could follow Thandi and spread the word about her amazing music! Let me know what you think in the comments. I can't wait to see what the rest of the year holds for Thandi!
