Some smooth, rich and soulful R&B now, from London-born Nigerian songsmith Eckoes.

“Pieces is what happens when 2 souls calcified by hurt & heartbreak collide. The rush & desire to escape into each other. It’s sexy, sad & explosive”, she told Fame Magazine. It’s sparse yet rich – a clever trick in the production, which is amazing – and velvety smooth, all of which serves to portray that image of strength with an undercurrent of vulnerability.
