South London singer and songwriter Greentea Peng releases her new release, 'Rising', following last year's acclaimed debut EP 'Sensi' and the simmering viral hit 'Downers', released this summer.
Featuring the blissful, Earbuds-produced 'Mr Sun (miss da sun)' that sets the tone for a bright, bold EP which weaves a myriad of genres, all anchored by a mesmerising old-soul vocal.
On the clattering title track 'Risin'', Peng announces “woke up today, brand new morning” over an insistent, handclapsupported beat, before adopting a half-spoken wordflow. Elsewhere, over the densely layered hip hop beat of 'Sane', she sings a low-slung, effortless hook: "come make me feel sane, baby."
Greentea Peng is dark and light, half soul-searcher and half wise-cracker. In a constant explorative state, she is honest and frank, her inner battles channelled through the rhythms and flows of her music. Her energy beams bright whether she's touching on darker matters or happier moments.
Visually Peng is a living, breathing piece of art effortlessly cutting the figure of a true British original. So much so, Vivienne Westwood street cast her for her recent 'Youth Is Revolting' cover of Dazed.
As a live performer Peng has supported the inimitable, kindred soul Neneh Cherry, has recently played Boiler Room's inaugural festival and headlined Roundhouse Rising. To celebrate the release of 'Rising' she recently played a sold-out headline show at Brixton's intimate jazz club, Hootananny.
