London MC Little Simz is by no means a new-comer in music, but her most recent album feels like nothing if not a fierce declaration of her arrival. ‘A Curious Tale of Trials + Persons’, which dropped on September 18th, is her debut studio album, following a strong portfolio of 4 mix tapes and 5 EPs. Her technically astounding and masterfully crafted verses have grabbed the attention of big names like Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar, as well as the attention of major record labels. Despite the offers, however, Simz released her debut under her own record label, Age 101: Music.
Her debut album includes attention-grabbing single “Dead Body”, and the recently released visuals are just as morbid as you might expect. As creepy as it all may be — it works, and it works well. The 21-year old’s ghostly and wicked music video solidifies her place as one to watch this year.
