Magnolia Thunderpussy

Stratford-raised Denai Moore has gone through a telling transition since first uploading an early recording of her 2012 demo Flaws. It was a beautifully sung, folk and RnB-informed track that deservedly brought Denai quick attention, and gave an indication that this songwriter had broad ideas; there belied a grit to her songwriting that was fresh and unique. Things moved quickly - Denai signed to London independent label, Because Music, and then Ben Drew was in touch; hed heard a couple of Denais songs and wanted to work with her on production, eventually producing The Lake EP in 2013. A much vaunted solo spot on the BBCs Later with Jools Holland followed, Denai commanding a grand piano under the studio spotlight. The captivating I Swore EP drew 2014 to a melodic close and gave a hint as to whats to come. These songs at their rawest in subject matter are united by heartbreak, testing times, and impending opportunity, all written and performed by a young woman with the world at her feet and her expectations looking up to the stars. Produced predominantly alongside Rodaidh McDonald (The XX/Sampha/Daughter) at his XL Studios, the space and atmosphere that revolves around Denais beautiful vocal makes for a chilling, intoxicating and quite beautiful listen. Barely into her twenty-second year, Denai has achieved plenty, but in real terms, has barely begun in reaching an audience that could realistically crossover any makeshift divide or genre specifics.
