Francesca Belmonte


Label K7 Genre UK & EU Cat no. k7322cd


With a slew of spooked, sultry tracks emerging online late last year, Francesca Belmonte slowly but surely emerged as one of the most fascinating new talents out there today, trafficking in her very own distinct vein of freaked pop which seamlessly blended in R n'B, soul, club, electronica, avant-garde and much more to hypnotic effect. Now, with her debut LP 'Anima', Belmonte finally unveils that distinctive vision in full, with a vast and shimmering collection of tracks. Although Belmonte first got her start singing with legendary experimental artist Tricky, appearing on his 'False Idols' and 'Adrian Thaws' albums and now signed to his own False Idols imprint, 'Anima' sees her develop her own uniquely singular persona. The sombre honest tones in her vocals are wickedly broken up by the beats, synths and electronica of her key collaborator, with the result being a powerful and highly expressive LP filled with passion. Produced by Tricky and is the first standalone artist album release on his False Idols label. Features guest vocals from Mykki Blanco.
