Josie Charlwood and Lef Germenlis set to release their debut collaborative EP
It's been a long time since we last caught up with Sussex' own Josie Charlwood - you might remember her from that stunning cover of Gorillaz 'Feel Good Inc' with some of the best loopstation work we've seen. So the fact she's back has us very excited.
Teaming up with Lef Germenlis, who hails from Thessaloniki, Greece, to put together a new EP - Worlds Away, Charlwood is keen to highlight just how independent a production this is. Impressively the duo have also created a video for their lead single 'Where We', with the help of videographer Sven Diehr. Created on a zero budget in a home studio in Tooting, South London, Josie and Lef wrote, recorded and produced what they're describing as 'Electronic Soul' and to our ears it's one of the most original tracks of the year.
A heady blend of Charlwood's dreamy vocals segue beautifully with a unique mix of soul vibes and electronica. The track and video production shows nothing of the miniscule budget they had to play with and the end result showcases a brilliant double act.
'Where We' will at 9pm tomorrow, 8th March - over on YouTube where both Josie and Lef will be present to talk to fans; you can visit the premiere page on YouTube right now but make sure you're definitely there at 9pm to join in the live fun.
EP, Worlds Away, is set for release on 22nd March. Watch out for our review in the next few days.
