One of the most exciting voices in the UK right now has just released another single entitled “Don’t You Love“. That’s rights, the incredibly talented Lil Silva has just dropped another track off his highly anticipated Mabel EP, which should be with us very soon, but of course, with his new offering, he just wants to get the excitement swirling that little bit more.
“Don’t You Love” follows a string of stunning releases from Silva all taken from his forthcoming EP, including title track “Mabel” and “First Mark”, and for this new track, he has teamed up once again with the highly talented LA artist BANKS to create this piece of musical art which is such a calm, and beautifully produced creation. The song premiered on US Vogue recently and is filled with stunning harmonies, not just with the combination of his own voice, weaved with the raw and beautiful sound of BANKS, but in the way he has so intricately layered up his own soulful vocals creating such an evocative and captivating production.
Lil Silva’s forthcoming EP is a collection of five songs that all together demonstrate just how he has evolved as an artist, producer and DJ, from his early introduction to the UK underground scene with the release of Seasons back in 2008 to now. Silva has developed and experimented with his work and vocal ability and now with the imminent release of Mabel, it is clear that he is right where he should be. There is a reason that the record has been receiving an array of support from a variety of tastemakers, including Pigeons & Planes and Pretty Much Amazing.
“Don’t You Love” is a true testament to Lil Silva’s growth as an artist with his vocals exploding the song into an entire new level and with the help of BANKS, it sits as one of the best pieces of music to be released all summer. So the answer to your question Silva is… YES I DAMN WELL LOVE IT!!! Listen to “Don’t You Love” below and pre-order Lil Silva’s Mabel EP on iTunes here.
