Szjerdene, pronounced JhurDEEN as her website helpfully points out, has drenched Jacques Greene and Koreless’ ‘Arrow’ with her own sultry vocals, a glaze of pure R’n'B honey. The original track is an atmospheric soundscape of beautiful electronica. Szjerdene’s feathery voice provides a layer of introspective soulfulness to the dreamy melody; it’s blissfully melodic garage with enough kick to keep things rolling.
If this leaves you hungry for more you can look forward to hearing Szjerdene feature on Bonobo’s latest album The North Borders, due 2nd April.
