Little Simz - 'Poison Ivy'

London based Little Simz unveiled a new video to her single 'Poison Ivy' earlier this week; and its a wonderful accompanyment to an immersive swaying modern ballad.

 Rhythmically there's a lot to pick out on this track, from the cuckoo of the pitched electronic percussion at the tracks opening, to the stuttering shuffle rhythm which chirps throughout like a scratched vinyl repeating and then of course Little Simz own, brilliantly precise lyrical flow.

 There's also a hint of Carlos Santana influence to this track, with a bold ostentatious guitar lead soaring above meandering conga percussion.
