UK singer-songwriter Indira May has unveiled her debut EP ‘Simpler Things’, out on Friday 27th August.

A five-track release, ‘Simpler Things’ opens with Indira’s recent single ‘Mama Said’, a soul-drenched ballad, that sees her tap into her trademark soul-and-jazz-infused sound as she draws inspiration from the life lessons imbued by her mother. Then there is ‘When I Hear The Music’,  a seductive ballad that draws on elements of jazz and soul to deliver the message of dancing and feeling free-spirited. The title track comes next, a smooth, jazz-inflected jam that sets the tone. Followed by the intimate track B Side which continues the theme of a slow and sultry sentiment, and closing things out, is the irresistible funk of ‘Losing Game’, with Indira’s head-turning vocals taking centre stage again, which has been featured on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ playlist.

“This EP is named after the title track ‘Simpler Things,’” Indira explains. “It promotes the idea of returning back to your inner self, stripping things back and using creativity as a tool to feel grounded when the world feels a little overwhelming. It touches on climate change, politics and becoming a woman.”

Drawing inspiration from a wide variety of musical legends, such as Billie Holiday, Jill Scott, Chet Baker, Howlin’ Wolf and many more, Indira May is a singer-songwriter whose captivating melange of jazz, soul and hip-hop has helped her attain the title of ‘one to watch’. She has previously performed at esteemed jazz venue Ronnie Scott’s and garnered support from BBC Radio 1 tastemaker Toddla T, while Indira is also the co-director and founder of TRASH FILMS AND MUSIC, an independent music label and film production company that’s ‘run by women, for everyone’.

Her largest body of work to date, ‘Simpler Things’ is Indira May at her bold and brilliant best.
