UNFLIRT RELEASES EMOTIONAL EP "APRIL NECTAR" TAKING US ON A JOURNEY THROUGH LOVE AND SILENCE
West London rising star unveils a five-track collection exploring love, silence, and personal growth
West London's rising star Unflirt unveils her emotional EP, "April’s Nectar," exploring themes of love, silence, and personal growth, showcasing Unflirt's distinctive voice and songwriting maturity across five outstanding tracks.
Preceded by the cathartic single "Had Enough" and The Sundays-inspired burner "Someday," "April’s Nectar" follows Unflirt's honeyed debut EP, "Bitter Sweet," earlier this year.
Working primarily alongside co-producer Mack Jamieson - Clavish, Wallice, Mahalia -, with additional contributions from Iain Berryman and Bastian Langebæk - Olivia Dean, Nilüfer Yanya, Birdy -, Unflirt delves into a more complex range of emotions with fleshed-out instrumentation while maintaining her unmistakable vocal tone.
"April’s Nectar" represents a maturity in Unflirt’s songwriting process. Unlike her previous approach of penning songs strictly at home before arriving in the studio, this time, she trusted her subconscious, turning up to sessions "empty-handed" to excavate her present emotions and introspections. Talking on the project, Unflirt said;
“These songs touch on a range of much more complex emotions that come with the reality of being in love. A huge part also that I feel has influenced my writing on this EP is what this experience has shown me about the best and worst parts of myself. I feel like I’ve gone through a second puberty from the ages 20-23, so I feel like this EP is really symbolic of that and all of the things I’ve learnt about myself from these experiences.”
"April’s Nectar" marks another significant chapter in Unflirt's musical journey, offering a compelling exploration of love, silence, and personal growth. With her distinctive voice, collaborative production, and emotionally resonant lyrics, Unflirt continues to make a lasting impact in the music landscape.
