A year after gifting us with her debut project The Nature Of The Beast, R&B singer/songwriter, Zilo, returns with her sophomore project Gorgeous.

Principally written and performed by Zilo, the tape sees us brought into Zilo’s colourful world of feelings that emote gorgeousness and the production by Bowtye, Dan Bartlett, Marco Bernardis, ROMderful & Tom Henry is a luscious fusion of enchanting guitar riffs and golden boom-bap beats, with Zilo’s honey-glazed vocals guiding us through the Neptunes-esque soundscape.

Speaking on the project, Zilo says, “This project is a journey of self exploration. I get to know the more charming, sexually driven side of my personality in an imaginary world I’ve created where everyone and everything in it is extremely beautiful and alluring. I explore being flirtatious, having fun, getting drunk, falling in and out of infatuation/love and losing all inhibitions when it comes to meeting new people. I wanted this project to take people on a journey of letting loose, feeling self confident and exploring your sexuality. Every song on this body of work made me feel or think of the word ‘Gorgeous’ in some way. It’s a bunch of gorgeous songs about gorgeous things.”

Press play on Gorgeous below and if you want to see her live, catch her headline show at London’s Omeara on October 14.
