Winter is still here, but the first flowers boldly show their colours, welcoming Spring. Gracious and buoyant, Gnarly’s track “Blossom” exuberates exactly this energy.

The lead single off her brand new EP, released on our own label, is a warm chillhop-inspired tune, which will invite you to shower in sunshine! Keys, beautiful like morning dew on rose petals and soul-caressing guitar licks add a special soulful flavour to the track, while the stunning drums provide the spine of the composition. Melodically, Blossom is just so captivating that every time I hear it I like it even more.

Combining real instrumentation (piano/guitar), sampling, and finger drumming, Gnarly’s EP Blossom offers a real soul-pleasing journey, while telling the story of a powerful transformation. The British-Sri Lankan artist elaborates:

2021 (when these tracks were made) was really a time for focussing on putting myself first, I really learnt a lot about who I am, what I want and what I need. I like letting the music speak for itself and I hope that the listener can hear and feel the vibe in each track with the underlying theme of being sometimes melancholy but always full of hope.
