Discovery: Pokkisham

Born in London and now based in St. Albans, Pokkisham is an experimental alternative pop artist who aims to defy genres. She’s certainly done so in her latest track Borrowed Time.

By Graeme Smith

Borrowed Time has its origins in pop, and Pokkisham cites Carole King and Elton John as influences for it. It’s not the kind of pop you’ll hear the charts though, incorporating classic instrumentals, choral vocal harmonies and an organic, jazzy piano melody. What stands out most is the lead vocals, ranging from the delicate to the powerful as the track rises and falls.

Taken from her forthcoming debut EP, you can check out Borrowed Time below.
