Sinead Harnett, the London singer whose zigzagging, soulful voice has previously prettied up songs by Disclosure and Ryan Hemsworth, is about to release her debut EP. The project —out June 15th—is called N.O.W, which at first makes me think of the runaway train of Top 40 compilations with the same name (I think NOW 50 was just released, which is kind of unfathomable). The EP’s lead single, “No Other Way,” wouldn’t be totally out of place on one of the much earlier editions, with its sassy, assertive chorus and uncluttered R&B production courtesy of Snakehips. NOW 6, maybe.
