A clear sense of lyrical and stylistic integrity characterises one of the standout rap albums of the year Having built a following with the past few years' singles and mixtapes, Flohio brings confidence and versatility to her debut album alongside innovative production and catchy hooks. Out Of Heart is a relatively short release with tightly packed songs, focusing on topics like perseverance and self-discovery, and it's hard to imagine a better introduction to her sound. Opening track SPF (no connection to sunscreen) is perhaps the record's most immediate song with old school electro elements and melodic earworms, and Speed Of Light cranks up the energy and the attitude for a full-on trap banger ("really I've been way too nice, don't you turn me to a killer").
After six years of diligently posting EPs, Bermondsey-based FLOHIO releases her debut album, 'Out Of Heart'. With help from executive producers God Colony and Speech, FLOHIO steps into the realm of alt-rap to release a project brimming with dynamic, left-field energy marking her as one to watch. When FLOHIO strays into experimental territory, the results can be thrilling.
