About this item

Hotly tipped by everyone from Annie Mac, Bonobo and Gorillaz to Billboard, NME, Crack, Mixmag and DJ Mag, TSHA is rapidly emerging as one of the most exciting talents coming out of the UK.

Lots of hype building for this one, as industry wigs, both big and small put all their chips on TSHA. Now, don't get me wrong, this is gonna net all those numpties a fortune.

EP opener OnlyL starts life as the kind of emotive and uplifting "anthem" you usually only encounter on a Samsung advert, pays "homage" to N-Joi's "Set You Free" then ramps up into a kind of Katy Perry in "Fireworks" mode dance-pop smasher. While Sophie subverted the signifiers of modern pop with a brand new sound, TSHA follows such strict adherence to what the Tik Tok generation are after that I'm beginning to think she might be the all-knowing algorithm.

On the B-side, "Power" is a sampledelic bit of turn of the Millennium big beat with hints of Fatboy Slim and Avalanches in peak time mode.

One for the investment fund...
