Freya Roy – Fantasies
Dropped March 15th, Freya Roy’s electronic soul single ‘Fantasies’ features Maya Law. Following the success of her acclaimed, MOBO-funded album AHKLE, the songwriter’s latest release is taking from her forthcoming EP. Due for release Autumn 2020, if the EP is anything like this number, we’re in for a treat. As featured across BBC Music Introducing, with airplay on BBC Radio 1 with Huw Stephens and BBC Radio 6 Music, Fantasies has something for everyone under it’s belt. There’s layers of electronica, dub, jazz, soul, R&B, indie and so much more to it’s bow.
I haven’t heard something this fresh since Jorja Smith dropped her debut album. Fantasies certainly does have something for everyone in it’s core, but it’s the soulful arrangement that will make you sway in time to the track. There’s flavourings of neo soul mixed with even jazz in the mix showcasing an artist staying as true to herself as possible.
