Klein is a popstar in training from Simon Cowell from London who cites Mona Scott Young as her reference guide. A live set on Tabitha Thorlu-Bangura’s first NTS radio show of 2016 preceded a video for ‘Arrange’, shot in parts in a blood red monochrome bedroom and taken from her debut album ‘ONLY’. The latter stage of the track courses through with off beat filtered percussion leading up to the “that heavy bit coming up”; awash with hums as the London based artist surfs the melodies of the introduced lighter tones. On ‘gaz city’ she nails in a mention of ‘WORTH’ before torching preconceptions of what fits inside what box with her singing, similar to her irisdescent adlibs on ‘babyfather chill’. Other influences range from brandy to kirk franklin. Hard to place, her capacity to surprise (even with one LP out so far).Not every artist is unique enough to change a landscape, or has to be successful. However, with Klein, you get the sense she’s already made a head start on both. . In Bieber words ‘shes the fucking one.’
