Raveena makes aqueous, delicate R&B that's not dissimilar to Corinne Bailey Rae's The Heart Speaks In Whispers, or KING's floatier moments. Her track "Honey" narrowly missed placing in last year's ILX '77.
She's just announced that her first album, Lucid, will be out in two weeks' time. There's no tracklist available yet but I presume "Honey" will be included, along with more recent singles "Temptation", "Mama", and "Stronger" (released today).
Her EP from 2017, Shanti, is also worth a listen.
Let's anticipate and luxuriate!

I didn't realise her album was coming so soon. Honey was one of the best songs of last year. Really excited for the rest of the album.

cosigned. "Stronger" is great--maybe an obvious trick, but making a song with that title so skeletal is v effective. The "Mama" video is extremely <3

Looks like none of the pre-2019 tracks are on the album.

after a couple of listens: one of the best lying-in-a-sun-dappled-hammock-late-in-the-afternoon albums ever.

Such a gorgeous album. I would have liked Honey to have been included, but it's still such a strong album anyway.

this turned out to be the perfect record for erasing the tension caused by a crappy day
