As you know, as a blogger I often receive an increasing number of emails from a variety of publicists, managers, labels and artists from all over the world. I recently received an email from a Miami, FL-based label, Art House Records about an up-and-coming Miami-based electro pop artist, Brika. Although her primary influence has been Coldplay, her sound as you’ll hear on her latest single “Expectations” owes a great debt to trip hop – in some way, Brika’s latest single is reminiscent of the likes of Portishead and Sneaker Pimps because of it’s minimalist production but breezier and jazzier, thanks in part to Brika’s seductive vocals.
