Mali Hâf’s magnetic attitude burns right through her latest offering of stylish bass-driven RnB electronic pop, ‘Refreshing’ featuring Shamoniks. With reverberant intensely layered beats beneath her vocals which soar with reminiscences of Nelly Furtado and Natasha Bedingfield, there’s a nice ode to 00s RnB within the distinctively arrestive hit.
On the basis of Refreshing, Welsh singer-songwriter Mali Hâf has all the potential to join the likes of Marina and the Diamonds, Cerys Matthews and Nina Persson in the ranks of iconic Welsh artists. She’s already in possession of strikingly sultry vocal dynamics which don’t just pull you into a sonic experience, but the emotion it was created with. She’s definitely one to watch.
Refreshing is now available to stream via Spotify.
