Effortlessly stylish, L.A. Salami - real name Lookman Adekunle Salami - is capable of turning heads before he even goes onstage.
Recently opening Burberry's Christopher Bailey S/S show in Hyde Park, the singer has a striking, timeless look all of his own. It's something which feeds directly into his music.
L.A. Salami has a smooth, soulful voice with all the dexterity of jazz - think Terry Callier or, more recently, Michael Kiwanuka. Ultimately, though, the Londoner sounds like himself. Imbuing each track, each recording with a zestful sense of joy, Clash is able to premiere new cut 'Day To Day (For 6 Days A Week)'.
Taken from new EP 'The Prelude' - out now - 'Day To Day (For 6 Days A Week)' is a deft, brisk piece of songcraft.
