Listen to British singer Billie Black’s experimental new EP, ‘This Simple Pleasure’. The new release, her third to date, is describe by her camp as an exploration of “a more alternative electronic sound with production from Soundcloud wunderkinds Mura Masa, Sam Gellaitry and Salute” and that the themes explored in the collection are “carefree hedonism and the thrill of new love”. Black states: “My aim is to make people think about what I’m saying rather than read what I’m saying. The songs I listen to again and again are the ones where the gaps aren’t filled in. That’s what draws me to Sam, Salute and Mura Masa’s songs. They feel just out of reach”. Check out the EP below, plus the video for its title track.
