With her debut single ‘Tea Lady‘, South Londoner Nią Chennai announces herself as a rising talent to watch.
Chennai brings maturity and self-assurance on this slick yet soulful track. Her honeyed vocals glide effortlessly over production that deftly infuses classic soul with modern electronic and R&B flourishes.
There’s a warm intimacy to ‘Tea Lady’ that draws you in from the opening bars. The specific details she shares make it feel less like a song and more like a conversation with an old friend.
This is contemporary soul with both feet firmly planted in the past, and it positions its creator as a promising young artist blending the vintage and modern.
