TRACK: bathe in the sun of PELA’s ‘South Of’

OFF THE back of their debut single, “You Got Me” last month, South London’s PELA have shared their second outing, “South Of”. 

It’s a beguiling, dazed bliss of a track, with an underscore of Rhodes shimmer and a lazy break shuffling forward, courtesy Olly Shelton; south-of-the-river chanteuse Hannah Coombes drips honeyed sun over the top. 

Sometimes you just have to abandon the clever stuff and say: it’s cracking.

You can hear Morcheeba at their stoned best; the emotional reach of Sia; and even the best of 90s’ British ambient – a genre due a reappraisal if ever there was one.

Olly and Hannah will bring us the summer regardless of the ‘Rona, and set us adrift on memory bliss.
