Listen To – “The Blow” by YADi


By Mandy Rogers

OK I’m going to say it! While the mainstream contrived pop mush of Will.I.am and Britney does absolute diddly squat for me, I am beyond thrilled to see that one of my most favourite EQ Discovery artists YADi has put up another track online.

In a live recording session filmed at the Fish Factory Studios, YADi tore into her mystical taster track of yore “Sahara Heart” and went on to additionally unveil a track that is new to me “The Blow”.

Coming at us somewhat indie, YADi’s multicultural blend of pop is right on the money for me. Suffice to say, I can’t help but remain in adoration of Hannah YADi’s svelte emotionally outpoured vocals.

The Blow” is a co-write between YADi and American record producer Ariel Rechtshaid who has also been behind hits for Haim, Charli XCX, and Sky Ferreira.

It’s been quite a journey over the last couple of years to this point for YADi, but I sincerely hope that 2013 will bring much more of her stylish pop to the fore.  I so WANT it and I know that I'm not standing alone on this.
