Meet Rosie Lowe and Espa, the girls bringing the most soulful new sound to London town. London born and bred Espa, 23, is known for her rainbow locks, deep, soulful voice and future-leaning beats, while 24-year-old South Londoner Rosie Lowe's stripped back R&B has won her fans like Adele (so, she's arrived then?). Espa is unique in that she makes her own music videos, album artwork and does her own styling – as can be seen in her video for Apartment 2F, while Rosie writes all her own music and performs with an all-female band. Kudos, girls.
We like them both so much – we're not ones for favourites – so we figured, why not sit them both down and ask them the same questions? Read on to find out what it's like to be a young female musician in London right now as they chat FKA twigs, Reebok Classics and nipple balms.
