EDITORS’ NOTES

Sleek electro-soul from the soulful Los Angeles singer with a far-out sci-fi vibe. “We are far away from them/Memory is spent, but I'm here to freeze the time again,” she sings, over a shimmering grid of synths and a disco-indebted drumbeat. It’s as though QUIÑ's been away from Earth for years. “Lightspeed” was recorded to celebrate NASA’s Juno Mission, which arrived in Jupiter’s orbit on July 4, 2016.

TITLE TIME

About QUIÑ

Born Bianca Leonor Quinoñes, Los Angeles-based singer Quiñ started out as a supporting vocalist, adding her dreamlike vocals to rapper G-Eazy's ethereal track "Think About You" in 2015. Following this feature, the singer immediately began work on her solo career, coining the term "Fantasy Soul" for her unique blend of spacy ambient textures, jazz-inflected melodies, and swaying vocal harmonies. Her debut EP, Galactica, materialized in 2016, including several singles such as "Math" and "Over Again," on which G-Eazy returned the favor by adding a guest verse. She followed the next year with her second EP release, Dreamgirl. The five-song EP included lead single "Sticky Situation," a keys-driven R&B workout featuring guest vocals by Odd Future affiliate Syd. ~ Fred Thomas
