London based singer/songwriter Mo Brandis burst onto the scene last month with his infectious debut release Undercover, followed by the latest track Red Lights – two superior singles that immediately showcased the young singer/songwriter’s natural charisma and flair for melody.
Mo would immediately pick up influential tastemaker support from titles including CLASH MAGAZINE and PAUSE MUSICALE amongst others, the more selective blogs quick to support an artist they saw as a polished, obvious new talent.
Indeed there’s both pop finesse and jagged basslines made apparent from Mo so far, giving credence to initial ‘pop-heavy R&B’ genre descriptions and bold comparisons to the playful, concrete abilities of Justin Timberlake or MNEK.
Mo Brandis himself has already garnered Top 10, platinum and gold releases as a songwriter in ten different countries, touring over 35 countries over the last few years as part of the soul/ funk act Incognito. Now coming through with his debut solo material, Mo proves he’s equally adept to making hits himself.
Speaking on the the forthcoming Undercover EP, Mo states: “I had so much fun making this EP because there were really no rules, no brief, no deadline - it was just pure vibes without overthinking it too much. It’s a snapshot of where I’m at right now, still sort of undercover but now also stepping out on my own.”
