“Ice.Moon” is one of my favorite songs of the year, and SZA is one of 2014’s breakout stars. She’s positioned herself very well with this EP, and that gorgeous voice alone should make her a star. Luckily, she’s backed it up with absolutely pristine production that suits her voice especially well. Her voice is icy and sharp like a crystal, and it sends chills through me. I love this little EP, and I can’t wait to see what happens for her next year.
I’ve realized that my Tumblr hiatus last year made me forget some great artists that I wanted to share. And one of those artists is SZA.
SZA has a soulful and expressive voice in the realm of Lianne La Havas and she works with some fantastic beat-makers. The combination evokes comparisons to The Weeknd. She put out her See.SZA.Run EP late last year and honestly I originally listened to it because she is a self-proclaimed Wu-Tang fanatic. And let’s be real- any girl that’s down with the Wu instantly has a place in my heart.
