Watch: Zilo – Be There Soon

Words by Jack Strong


It's been a huge year for Londoner Zilo, making waves internationally with recognition from the Soulection family and Kehlani, and the video for new single 'Be There Soon' is sure to make a long lasting impression.

On our radar for a while, Zilo was once an unconfident songwriter, believing there was a certain way to write songs. Now she’s creating her own sound, seductively balancing intertwined vocals over a bed of succinct percussion, addictive acoustics and powerful bass rifts.

Her soft and calming delivery is addictive and surely one of the R&B songs of the year so far. This is her statement piece, as she takes centre stage amongst psychedelic visuals whilst laying down one of the hooks of the summer.

Next stop is Somerset House on July 20th where she joins just your average line-up with the likes of Sango, Joe Kay, Xavier Omar and Andre Power. No pressure Z, but we have no worries.
