A fascinating new voice in alt-R&B...

Pelorus has travelled half-way round the world in search of music.

Born in New Zealand, his upcoming EP was largely drafted in Bristol, and takes influence from almost every stop on the journey.

Even the name Pelorus has meaning: it's a river in New Zealand, with his art forever rooted in life.

With his debut EP due in September, Clash is able to premiere a wonderfully absorbing yet introverted cut from the alt-R&B talent.

'Perfect Storm' is all intricate songwriting married to lush, beautiful textures, marrying subtle tones and hues to create something striking.

Pelorus tells Clash: “The track for me bought a sense of intimacy and comfort so with the lyrics I tried to paint a picture with those two feelings.”

Tune in now.
