With any justice, flowerovlove will continue rising towards commercial success.

flowerovlove - A Mosh Pit In The Clouds

By metrics both traditional and deciedly modern, 17-year-old Joyce Cisse is rising rapidly. The singer-songwriter’s newest five track EP offers a brief, but tantalising glimpse at what’s to come. It’s impossible not to fall for the charms of centrepiece ‘I Gotta I Gotta’ - a bass-heavy number filled with sudden drum bursts and playful handclaps that vibrates with the nervous excitement of first love and crushes. Elsewhere she showcases her independence and self-assurance, as she turns understated declarations of “I’m not gonna change my ways” into a rallying cry on ‘All The Same’, as well as the simple joys of adolescence - penning an ode to dressing up and going out with friends on ‘Out For The Weekend’. At the heart of all these songs is her captivating, honeyed vocals. With any justice, flowerovlove will continue rising towards commercial success.
