'No Winners' is a "delightful jam that goes down smooth". All but bubbling over with a sense of restrained mirth that points to the frivolity of missed connections, the track is indebted the likes of Herbie Hancock, with a laidback synth line that slides in neatly behind the beat.

Female pop/soul ballad songwriter, plays piano and sings power vocals with vocal acrobatics just to annoy people who can't do it with original storytelling songs.
This is a song that empathises with women who've become emotionally attached in a fling type relationship. It's the fear and anger of rejection while needing to be wanted. The Flavour is deep R&B early 2000s influence with fluffy harmonies like a red wine on a cold rainy night.

imbi the girl - acidic     Funk/Soul, Hip Hop 03/03/2018
If their impact this year is anything to go by, imbi the girl is sure to make a bigger splash in the industry in 2018 and beyond.
‘acidic’ is a bassy track, underpinned with steel drums and seamlessly borrowing trap elements. It’s obvious that the production itself serves to deliver Imbi’s lyrics; while being rich and complex it never overshadows them.
