You’d have been forgiven for thinking that winter was nigh after some recent grim weather in London, but thankfully that burning ball in the sky is back and so are the summertime vibes thanks to Elisa Coia.

The Brooklyn-based singer and producer’s debut single, ‘This Human Ache’, is carefully crafted pop gold. Coia’s big, dynamic voice and skilful production nod to the great soul of the 80s without a trace of pastiche, while glittering synths over an infectious groove make for gorgeous results.

‘This Human Ache’ will appear on a three track EP that is due for release this autumn and after such a bold debut, it’s clear that Coia is a woman to watch.
