Klein

Tusk Festival 2017 Sage Gateshead

Klein seems keen to hide her tracks in the hilarity of her own Tumblr, her ‘biog’ detailing the career props such ace faces as Gary Barlow and Ray Mears supposedly gave the budding starlet. If we can believe our ears though, Klein takes liquid-sheen r&b, dismembers it and patches it back together with the intimacy of someone seductively whispering sweet lies into your ear whilst stealing your card details, something you feel more than happy for her to do.

Her first release Lagata is still available for free on Bandcamp and is the bait that snared us, followed by the great Only album and there’s more to come on a notable/influential UK electronic label later this year, we’re told – something we’re frankly a bit surprised about as Klein’s music just seems too unpredictable (in the best possible way) but then, who knows where she’s taking us.
