Lea Lea – Black Or White (Radio Edit)

We came across this dark electronic soul female uk artist and was stunned by her authenticity and powerful vocals. Take a listen to the radio edit of “Black or White” and let us know what you think and if you’d like to hear more of this wonderful artists’ work.

Wah Wah 45s are proud to welcome a brand new voice to our fold. Lea Lea – a most powerful vocalist and lyricist, with a fierce and challenging style. Already getting rave reviews for her explosive live show, she was recently selected as an “Artist to Watch” by BBC Introducing, and in her short career has already managed to write songs for artists at DefJam, RCA, BBE records and Tru Thoughts, as well as performing on line-ups that have included Jay-Z, Beyonce, Roots Manuva and Little Dragon.

Her uncompromising, sassy style has drawn comparisons to Missy Elliot, MIA, Kelis and Grace Jones, but Lea Lea’s is really a one-off – at once alluring, charming and commanding. Writing songs that encourage dialogue and challenge female stereotypes, whilst being thoroughly entertaining, Lea Lea thrives on the darker side of music yet delivers her songs with an infectious warmth.

Her first single for Wah Wah 45s is a song about judgment and condemnation from those who only see life as either “Black or White”. It’s defiant and daring, made more so by bold brass that interplays with Lea Lea’s vocals, underpinned by uncompromising trademark beats.

Remixes to come courtesy of Japanese dupstep don Goth-Trad, Hospital Records beat technician Other Echoes and bass worrying French producer DJ iZem, making this a somewhat formidable package!

Her upcoming album is the result of her collaboration with producer/drummer Jack Baker (Bonobo/Alice Russell/TM Juke & The Jack Baker Trio). The pair started off making classic U.S.-inspired soul, which progressively warped into a darker, cinematic sound, besieged with powerful vocals
and complex yet sparse production.

Modern in style, dramatic in production – Lea Lea is our new queen of dark electronic soul.
