Premiere: Imi – ‘Margins’

Having received acclaim from BBC Introducing and BBC 6Music’s Steve Lamacq, and supporting the likes of Let’s Eat Grandma and Ghostpoet, Leeds-based artist Imi is set to release her atmospheric new EP this month.

Taken from the EP, new single ‘Margins’ offers a dark, ethereal soundscape. Propelled by pulsating beats, the sweeping splendour of Imi’s powerful vocals soars alongside glitchy electronic hooks, creating an utterly bewitching creation. With shades of the likes of the sparkling alt-pop of Goldfrapp, it oozes a haunting grandeur that’ll send shivers down the spine on first listen. Of the track, Imi explains:

Margins’ explores the peak of my frustrations, offering a mocking account of my past constraints, but over time my thoughts on this have evolved. While my ambition for change hasn’t faltered, my perspective has matured in a way that is more accepting and is able to find happiness in the everyday.”

Lines, the upcoming EP from Imi, is out 15th March.
