With around 4,000 Soundcloud followers and a smattering of press, Los Angeles electro-pop artist Quiñ is flying under the radar. But for how long? Due to release her debut 9 Lives sometime this year, she’s already collaborated with artists like G-Eazy and Chuck Inglish and hit this year’s SXSW circuit. She describes her sound as “Fantasy Soul Music,” an “unlimited world of melodies, feelings, and imagination in which her musical mind lives.” This is a pretty spot-on articulation of her sound – dreamy vocals layer over what Gilberto & Getz would have produced in 2016 with a synthesizer. She’s a welcome addition to this generation of R&B songstresses, marching behind artists like AlunaGeorge and Kehlani. Don’t snooze.
