The voice on all of your favourite records plays her own stuff liveNorth London-born Sinead Harnett’s own brand of R&B on her new self-titled EP is filled with delicate melodies and underlying embellishments but anchored with a hard bodied soul that is mature beyond her 26 years.
Sinead was still in college when she was called upon by the Godfather of Grime, Wiley, to record vocals for his single ‘Walk Away’ after a chance exchange on Twitter. This link up became the catalyst for something much bigger, as Sinead quickly picked up more high profile collaborations in the shape of Disclosure’s ‘Boiling’, Ryan Hemsworth’s ‘Small + Lost’, and three tracks on Rudimental’s debut album.
Across two EPs, a number of singles, and a few more high profile collaborations, Harnett’s artistic identity is fully realised.
Comprised of four tracks, Sinead Harnett’s eponymous EP alludes to her diverse range of influences, but with a clarity and self-assuredness in her own vision. This confidence in herself and resistance to stereotypes is a value that comes across in her forthcoming record, as she moulds the conventional sounds of contemporary R&B to her own design alongside forward-thinking producers Grades, JD Reid, Kaytranada and Snakehips for a sultry blend of soul and cutting edge electronic music.
Already with credits on three number 1 albums to her name, Harnett's created a body of work that not only feels true to herself, but speaks to anyone that’s felt like they’ve visited a dark place; offering hope through a record that pays homage to the music she listened to growing up and inspiring a vibe unlike anything heard in popular music today.
