• charlotte dos santos Cleo (LP, £22.95)

    The debut album for this singer/songwriter/producer. Born in Norway, Charlotte combines soul, jazz, rare groove and Afro/Latin influences, with a warm sense of storytelling & an angelic voice that seems to float over any track it’s on. Currently based in Brooklyn, NY, Charlotte has been making waves as of late with her sentimentally-timeless singles “Red Clay” and “Good Sign”, and keen visual aesthetic (best seen in her music videos, which she co-directs). Now Charlotte makes good on all of the potential she’s shown thus far with the release of her debut project, Cleo. The project compiles a few lost Soundcloud and compilation fan-favourites (“Move On”, “Take It Slow” and “Watching You”) with stand-out pieces (including “Good Sign”, “Cleo” and “King Of Hearts”) – all coming together to paint a singular, yet universal, coming-of-age love story. On the album title’s significance, Charlotte explains “’Cleo’ is a woman who represents power, femininity, courage and independence. She is ambitious and fearless, yet humble. She is the woman I feel I am becoming, and the woman I feel all girls could be.” Charlotte wrote & produced the project herself, with Oslo beatmaker Fredfades (of the Mutual Intentions crew) contributing on four songs as well.
