Simmering in the underbelly of Barcelona, the rising star has dropped some irresistible neo-soul goodness.
The languid vocals of Bikôkô flutter to heavenly highs and swoop to soulful reverberating depths, and from the very first haunting looping vocals in her new track, it’s clear – this is not an artist to sleep on.
Coming from the verdant underbelly of the Barcelona music scene, the 19-year-old artist might have only started her musical career just a couple of years ago, but “Feels Like” – her incendiary, and oh-so-effortless new track – proves her age is no reflection of her self-assured sonic prowess.
Staccato percussion paces the simmering neo-soul track, which is the first drop from Bikôkô’s debut six-part EP and visual project, a hair-raising exploration of the power of music, and its ability to infiltrate, change and nourish people’s daily lives. Each single will symbolise a part of the day and what it means for the rising star.
And the visuals are a kitschy fever dream, immersing the viewer in “Feels Like”, which is an afternoon within the entire EP; a portion of the day, that for the artist, represents a time less dictated by the hectic rush of responsibilities, and more by intimate contact with people. Close your eyes and immerse yourself in the soundscape of an undeniable one-to-watch.
