South Wales siren Volenté will be releasing a brand new EP next week.
Broken Promises marks her out as an intriguing talent, mixing as it does drum ‘n’ bass beats, a bit of dubstep squelch, dramatic strings, and, of course, Volenté’s sugar-sweet, soothing vocal, which adds a welcome bit of contrast to the musical madness going on behind her. It sounds on paper (or, indeed, website) like a bit of a mess, but we promise you’ll be bowled over by how it works. Listen to the title track below:
And, if you like that, we strongly recommend that you check her out when she plays live this Friday (March 22) at Newport’s Warehouse, at the Dublin Castle in London on April 12, or Cardiff’s Buffalo Bar on April 26.
The Broken Promises EP is out on March 25 through Dockrad Records, and will be available to download through iTunes and Amazon.
