    Allow us to introduce you to Griff, the latest popstar ready to still your heart with pristine bops.

    Don't kick yourself if you haven't heard of the name just yet, the 18-year-old half-Chinese and half-Jamaican Londoner is fresh off the press. 

    Her debut cut Mirror Talk debuted on Radio 1 last month with Annie Mac naming the fresh artist one of her 'New Names', an honour that she hands out to few including Dua Lipa, and now we're enchanted with another stripped back tune called Didn't Break It Enough

    Given the amount of songs about heartbreak, it's tough to find a new angle to talk about a separation of hearts but Griff's done it so effortlessly on this one, using her sophisticated lyrics to ponder why her love didn't break her heart enough since she's still in love with them.

    Meanwhile, Mirror Talk is an instantaneous hit. Backed by a minimal beat, Griff delivers raw, honest vocals that allow her personality to flow immediately. Stylistically, it sits somewhere between Julia Michaels' Issues and Lipa's IDGAF. Few artists can craft a hit with little fuss surrounding it but such is the strength of Griff.

    The hook is a floating, crystalline piece of pop writing but she really shines in the final bridge when she starts to steam roll with her words. Once that mighty final chorus hits we're hooked. 

    There are few details out there about the teen who is gearing to release more gold this year. She's just finished her final exams at school and steps out of the classroom into the pop world with stunning confidence.

    "I don’t know what other kids did,” Griff shares. “You get home after school, try to write a song in six hours and before you know it it’s bedtime."

    Impressively, Griff writes all her own work and also largely produces it by herself which is rare for an artist entering the pop scene at such a young age. 

    It's rare that we gush this much over a new song but Didn't Break It Enough and Mirror Talk are worth the hype. .
