We say

We are big fans of the ethereal pop sounds of east London-based artist and producer Blakey, having supported him since the release of his moving track Future Skies back in 2018. His music has been streamed globally over 10m times, generated 50k+ Shazams, featured across numerous Spotify’s New Music Friday and editorial (Easy, The Pop List, Mellow Pop) playlists, as well as various Top 50 Viral and Top 50 Chart lists. BBC Radio 1, Radio 2, 1 Xtra, Noisey, Clash and Notion are fans, while sync placements have seen his music being used in TV shows from Love Island to Netflix’s drama series Shadowhunters. Now comes his best yet in new single Crawl as once again the singer-songwriter wears his heart on his sleeve in this gorgeous number. Soaring piano melodies blend with delicate guitar motifs and ghostly production to create something special and uniquely Blakey. Another absolute gem from the rising star.
