Taken from ‘Tripping on Wisdom’
Mixtape released 21/05/2012
“Oozing elegance and class over creeping, precarious beats, Py is one to watch out for’’- Abeano
‘Pretty spot on if you ask me’ – Boiler Room
If ‘Tripping On Wisdom’ is as adventurous as the taste in backdrops this young singer’s displayed so far, prepare for something that’s both addictive and a little outside of the proverbial box’ – Pinboard Blog
Preparing for what is sure to be an inevitable thrust into the limelight with the release of ‘Tripping On Wisdom’ on 21st May, Py now shares lead single ‘Lungs’ produced by George Fitzgerald.
Centred around love as a destructive concept, ‘Lungs’ acknowledges that where love exists, so does jealous and cheat; that when you love someone, your very essence of being is controlled by them.
Taken from her mixtape ‘Tripping On Wisdom’, it marries Py’s astounding voice with production by the likes of Breton, Throwing Snow, Greenwood Sharps, iO, Damu and Raffertie alongside Caspar Kedros who helped to mix the collection of tracks with Py.
The perfect snapshot of an artist at the start of their career, brimming with creativity and inspiration, ‘Tripping On Wisdom’ hails the arrival of a singular talent.
