Imani Coppola is a singer of many guises. A multi-instrumentalist, respected solo artist and one half of tech-pop duo Little Jackie.
The Brooklyn-based singer has a new solo project coming this month, and she’s shared the first cut from it: ‘Just Feels Good’.
On this sun-baked track, heavy piano keys thump and synths crunch, while Coppola beckons you to stroll with her (“Even the sunshine’s feeling my vibe… I take it from a midday stride to a midnight strut”). There’s an air of ‘My Friend’ by Groove Armada about it. And Coppola has a pop-punk magnetism that’s somewhere between Shingai Shoniwa of Noisettes and Kelis.
‘Just Feels Good’ is taken from her forthcoming album, Hypocrites, which will be self-released by Coppola on July 21.
Listen to the single below. And find out more about the album here.
Coppola has released more than 10 albums since the release of 1997’s Chupacabra. Some of her highlights include The Glass Wall, Afrodite, The Black & White Album, and The Stoop by Little Jackie.
