Leeds based vocalist imi releases her second single ‘Margins’, the debut release for new label and collective Bibliotek.
Following her debut single ‘Born For What?’ back in December last year, imi made her first live appearance on BBC Introducing West Yorkshire, and was shortly after featured on Steve Lamacq’s 6 Music show. Exploring a vast array of influences, ‘Born For What?’ brings a contemporary spin on a sound rooted from the past.
Her second single ‘Margins’ follows in similar footsteps, bringing together her soaring, ethereal vocal delivery atop an array of arpeggios, synthesizers and strings. Classically trained from the age of 8, imi continues to explore the capabilities of her voice, shifting gears between soft dulcet tones and remarkable high sections, somewhere between Kate Bush and Grimes.
Margins is available to stream now on Soundcloud and is set for release via Leeds label Bibliotek, a collective launched by electronic producers Laminate Pet Animal. Check out their site here, for all upcoming releases and featured artists.
