For a debut single, ‘Forgetful’ juxtaposes it’s name by leaving a mark on listeners with delightfully original songwriting. Her style is justifiably difficult to draw comparison to, but some similarities could be drawn to both tune-yards and Laura Mvula. Like both of these artists, Thandi‘s vocals act independently from the instrumental track; both music and vocals are meticulously crafted to hold their own without one needing to ‘support’ the other.
The new artists’ style is a modern take on soul and RnB which crosses a diverse area of the musical spectrum. Her vocals are almost orchestral, layering harmonies to almost angelic effect. With such an original debut single, the next track from the London singer is eagerly anticipated and will hopefully show even more range in her style.
