Born in Nigeria but raised in Nairobi and Leeds and now residing in London, Tamaraebi’s diverse upbringing reflects on his Psychedelic/R’n’B infused new single. A celebration of both black people and their art, Tamaraebi combines neo-soul with psychedelic guitars on ‘Brown Angel’, melding together in a gorgeous take of R’n’B, centred around his inspiring vocals. Piecing the eponymous sounds of Jimi Hendrix with the infinite coolness of Prince, together with current R’n’B standouts such as Moses Sumney or NoMBe, ‘Brown Angel’ utilises the best parts of its influences to create a sublime display of R’n’B perfection.

Speaking about the video for ‘Brown Angel’ Tamaraebi explained: “We shot it in an old pub in Peckham at the height of the Black Lives Matter protests last year. I wanted to do something visually that contributed to black art and also celebrated the varied beauty of blackness – from a fuller figured model to really dark-skinned ones. I wanted everyone to enjoy the beauty of blackness in its natural element, no matter what race they were.”

Tamaeraebi’s new EP ‘Spectrum’ lands on May 19th.
