Shivani Day Announces Her Arrival With 'That Which Is Not' EP

July 05, 2024

Shivani Day is a name you're going to want to know. The Leicester representative is a new addition to the R&B scene—she released her first-ever single, "Rhetoric", back in April—but she's already delivered her debut EP, That Which Is Not, via Jorja Smith's FAMM records. The six-track EP gives her listeners a glimpse of her palette of '80s and '90s house, jazz, electronica, trip-hop and R&B influences, blending them seamlessly into her own custom sound.

Speaking on That Which Is Not, she says: "The project captures the beginning of my journey; these songs have allowed me to feel and follow my inner guide. Showcasing a range of genres and fusions I enjoy, this is the raw but refined version of myself as an artist. Tapping into different aspects of myself and my career prior to music so far."

As well as lacing the alluring production with captivating vocals and vulnerable songwriting, Shivani represents her South Asian roots through the use of expert sampling. For someone at the beginning of her journey, Shivani's artistry is impressively mature and layered.
