Last night team MP! were lucky enough to witness a star in the making. Self confessed ‘Drama Queen’ EJ is the latest in the recent surge of female singer-songwriters like Emeli Sandé and Lana Del Rey to take a shot at stardom and thanks to her undeniable stage presence, impressive vocals and feisty attitude, we reckon she’s going to go far.
But what about the music? Well ‘Bangers & Mash’ is already getting radio support from BBC Radio 1Xtra and it’s a stuttering, dark track that is closer to the sound of Tinie Tempah and Jessie J’s ‘Do It Like A Dude’ than the other artists we listed above. There’s an addictive riff, explosive chorus and lyrics like “If you wanna flatter me, come find me in the grocery and tell me that when all my make-up’s off” – we’ve not really heard many other songs like it before, and for that reason alone we’ve chosen it as our Song Of The Day.
