Check out new track 'Blue Lights'
Jorja Smith

Jorja Smith knows how to cut right to the bone.

Still only 18 years old, the Walsall native has a rare directness in her work, allied to a supple, soulful voice that betrays her early love of Curtis Mayfield and Trojan box-sets.

New track 'Blue Lights' was sparked when analysing Dizzee Rascal's 'Sirens', and it matches social commentary to autobiography, hip-hop inflections to sparse, affecting pop music.

An incredible introduction, you can check it out below.
