Devotion is the long-awaited debut album from Tirzah, produced entirely by Mica Levi and mixed by Mica and Kwes. This is essential summer listening from one of the most exciting and innovative pop/RNB artists in the world right now. Prepare to truly lose yourself in one of 2018's most important and more importantly enjoyable albums...
Ever since her 'I'm Not Dancing' 12" landed on our doorstep back in 2013 (we imagine many people are still kicking themselves for sleeping on that one) and equally scarce on wax contributions to Mica Levi's DDS Taz And May Vids EP, plus a one-off Vinyl Factory collaboration with Mumdance, Mica and Warp's Nozinja, we've been waiting patiently for a proper full-length from the London based vocalist. Thankfully the wait is now over and within seconds of album opener 'Fine Again' hitting the air, we think you will agree that the wait was very much worthwhile.
Devotion offers us an intimate collection of downtempo love-songs laced with romance and lust, melancholy and desire as experienced from a vocalist who really blurs the edges of grime, pop and RNB with a sweet yet street level edge. Along with her core crew of friends and collaborators (Mica, Coby Sey, Kwes and Brother May), Tirzah is quietly writing a new chapter within RNB; one that not only reads like, but is surely, the most irresistibly exceptional sounds on record right now.
Trust us, Devotion is a properly present, future and all-time classic album in the making.
