We say

Swt Valli Hi (Sweet Valley High) is a multi-disciplined Nigerian-American artist who’s picking up her fair share of attention with her harmonious blend of soul and wild funk with a classic rock’n’roll attitude. She can already count Earmilk, Wonderland, Paper, Dummy and Afropunk among her key tastemaker supporters. Formerly signed to Warner Music, Swt Valli Hi parted ways to start up an indie imprint named EIGHTEEN in 2018 and since then has dropped four singles, including the recent track Over It. Now back with this sultry and introspective jam, backed by a distinctly dark beat and full of captivating vocals, she is ready to ramp things up. Perfect for new R&B and sultry playlists, along with plays at 1Xtra, Kiss and Reprezent radio, Telescope is a bold and gutsy explosion of experimental R&B that is sure to find fans here in the UK.
