Ones to watch: Ekkah

If like me you've already worn a hole in your new Jessie Ware CD, then this should fill the gap until the next Amazon delivery.

Rebecca Wilson and Rebekah Pennington are two friends from Birmingham trading under the name Ekkah (you can see what they did etc, etc) whose exquisite debut single, Figure It Out, was featured on the blog back in May.

Their new single is called Last Chance To Dance, and it captures those euphoric-but-desperate last moments on the dancefloor before the doors open and the club vomits you into the yellow night to find a cab and a sorry bag of soggy chips.

As the Jessie Ware comparison would suggest, it's slinky, perfectly executed, low-key funk. Exactly the sort of thing I'd hoped the Mutya Keisha Siobhan reunion would produce before it collapsed like a souffle in a black hole.

PS: Ekkah are touring with Jess "her off the good Clean Bandit single" Glynne for the rest of this month, if you want to catch them in action.
