Ethereal pop, new wave rap and soulful RnB collide in the sophomore single, It’s You., from the enigmatically sensational artist, Malice. Sonically, she conjures dreamy and wavy ambient textures in the soundscape that feeds in plenty of tape echo effects. Vocally, she is unpredictable from one verse to the next. From phantasmal harmonies to fierce rap increments, you can expect to hear the full extent of her smooth vocal dynamic in her reprising single.
Based on It’s You, Malice deserves to be just as acclaimed as her trip-hop/dream pop predecessors, and yes, that includes Portishead.
It’s You. is now available to stream on Spotify
