Vanessa Elisha - "Blur" (prod. Jrdn Gxnius)

Age seems increasingly irrelevant today as younger and younger musicians garner as much hype as their grizzled, aging counterparts. Take for instance Archy Marshall (King Krule), Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, and Sorcha Richardson. Today we feature the talented and stunning Vanessa Elisha who at the age of 21 has put together a dynamic R & B composition with "Blur". There is a certain fantastical element that pervades throughout. With the world in tatters and resembling a nightmare it proves difficult not to wish for what Elisha croons for: "Take me away from it, take me away, the real world's too cold." With the hostage crisis in Algeria, a growing impasse in U.S. politics, deteriorating women's rights in India, and an unprecedented amount of random violence, I will echo that call. Just one brief moment of fantasy and respite before we have to pick up the pieces. On a brighter note, "Blur" is a free download.
