Ego Ella May - So FarTru Thoughts
"So Far" is the debut of South London native Ego Ella May. The ten track lp features three previously released songs from the "Zero" ep back in 2015. May also displays a flair for clever song-writing. Evidence of that lies with the gorgeous "Tea and Sympathy" where her lush emotive vocals float over the hypnotic hip-hop inspired beats courtesy of producer Wu-Lu and Budgie. "Underwater" and "Come On" are dreamy slow burning tunes with the latter featuring Kojey Radical. Of course the title track is the sweetener which kicks off the disc. May's seductive vocals lure you in and from that point you're willingly along for the ride. Each song is a blissful journey through the art of story telling. Four years after hitting the scene, "So Far" is certainly worth the wait.
