This year Szjerdene has aligned with Ninja Tune for the eagerly anticipated re-release of 'Patchwork’ The EP'. Throughout this short four-song offering Szjerdene shows, in an unpretentious way, her spectrum of abilities in songwriting and arranging which are breathtakingly wonderful. With her unique mix of soul and folk inflected vocals combined with electronic leftfield sounds and folk-inspired melodies, Szjerdene presents a grounded understanding of her craft. Aptly named ‘Patchwork’, each song displays a different quality – the common feature being, blessed with the unique melodies and stories written by Szjerdene.
“Subtle psychedelia, electronics, jazz and soul – it’s all there. Beautiful music, confident, carefully considered and crafted by a very real star in the making.”
– Nick Luscombe (Musicity/BBC Radio 3)
