Hi Love left us enraptured and sent us back in time with her latest 90s-inspired RnB EP, ‘Cold Wind’. The title may allude to the cold chill of winter, but the soul which the six glamorously shimmering singles contain allows them to radiate nothing but warmth.
With some reminiscences of Beverly Knight and Jennifer Hudson, Hi Love’s sound is beyond accessible. The distinction comes through the visceral emotion projected by the hypnotically harmonic vocals which efficaciously draw you into her music. The first track and title track is the perfect introduction to the EP which inspires the listener to think of a higher level.
Cold Wind is available to stream via Spotify.
