There is something about Wilma Nea’s music which feels so natural, yet hauntingly original. Her clever vocal melodies dances atop the tracks in a way that manages to feel equal parts showtun-ey as vulnerable. The upcoming EP ‘Issues’ which is her first work made almost entirely by herself. “I’ve given myself the space to fail and try different ways of working. The EP is full of homemade solutions and I love that”, she explains further about the process.
