Saffron Sessions: China Bowls, Only Love is out. Watch now on YouTube.
Saffron Records' first signed artist, China Bowls, drops a new live Saffron Sessions performance Only Love. China Bowls captures you in an aural trance with her insightful lyrics, playful vocals, and satisfying funk. Only Love is performed in the lead up to the release of her upcoming EP Talk.
Coming from a festival background with an infectious neo soul jazz vibe, experimental hip-hop influences and just a hint of gypsy swing, it is often best to expect the unexpected from China Bowls. Playing across the country, from Colston Hall to Glastonbury, Boomtown and Bestival, she’s a storyteller in her own right and delivers both extensive solo sets and dynamic full band performances.
Upcoming debut EP, Talk, follows from her signing with Saffron Records earlier this year. Here she worked closely with her prolific and eclectic mentor Eva Lazarus (Dub Mafia). Talk weaves tales of life experiences, unfolding into an artwork which evokes, comforts and uplifts. She delivers poignant storytelling of the fragility of human relationships, and the strength that comes from self realisation.
In the latest Saffron Sessions China Bowls’ Only Love explores our capacity to hurt and test those closest, with thoughtful insight into fear, disbelief and masked emotions.
Filmed by Puzzlebox Film’s Paul James, the performance consists of China Bowls as songwriter and vocalist on guitar, and her band: drummer Connor Spring, bassist Dan Plimmer (Cut Capers, Camo Clavè) and Hal Sutherland on keys.
Talk EP will be released later this summer, with a featured music video.
