Fans and supporters of Californian sweetheart Iman Europe know it’s been a long time coming – today, her debut album Nami arrives after its kickstarter’s success. In this sonic kaleidoscope we witness Europe flying high and relishing in her own glory. The twelve rich love jams (that feel like they can be dedicated to self as much as they can a lover) are a sublime display of the singer’s endless bag of vocal, writing and vibe-shifting tricks. Personal favorites “Sometimes” and “High Tonight” are breezy night-ride cuts while “Issues” delivers a Hip Hop-tinged and perfectly-spiced read, “Me!” boasts gritty, west coast energy and “Speedin’/Sprung” offers a hazy, Electronic vibe.
Nami includes the recently released “Time,” has an accompanying, self-written affirmation book (Nami Says) and contains contributions from Wayne Valentine, SiR, Ill Camille, Fat Ron, DK The Punisher and Zyah Belle. Listen below.
