Single of the week: heka – no one review

by Philip Moss

Music writers so often talk about artists who create a world of their own through their art – and it could not be any more the case on heka’s new single, no one.

Released through the Fire Talk imprint, Open Tab, the genre free wanderings of no one sees London based, Francesca Brierley, layering upon a field recording from a lazy Berlin morning – trading the relative claustrophobia and noir-drenched samples of her last EP, (a), for a spaciousness that allows her special voice to move into places it hasn’t occupied previously.

Hinged around the central lyric, ‘nobody ever gets that close anymore’, in the same way it took Brierely a while to make sense of the line’s sentiment, no one is a song that, given the chance, will tangle itself – tight – around your subconscious.
