Discovery: Flores

Norwegian-Mexican-American pop star Flores combines R&B vocals with trip-hop and gospel influences and we just love it.

Flores reminds me a lot of one of my favourite discoveries of last year, Denai Moore, in the way she pulls together a track with a minimal arrangement that supports a powerful vocal narrative. New single Wings is a prime example. Backing up Flores’s stunning voice are gospel harmonies that create a highly emotive track that will give you the feels.

Though now residing in Norway, Flores was born in LA with a Mexican-American heritage. That probably goes some way to explaining her unique sound. Thoroughly immersive and enjoyable, I could listen to Flores forever. I hope you agree. Check out Wings below:
