The new single, recorded, mixed and mastered at Uptown Studio in Brussels, combines the musicality, depth and sincerity of his high and low vocal melodies that wash over you, peeking out behind familiar and warm rock-steady undertones, reggae music’s most abundant gift. Alongside a horn section that elevates the smoothness towards brightness and light, getting you summer ready and definitely making you want to fall in love, over and over again.
Its lyrical ease is accessible whilst still being distinct, harking back to previous eras of colourful and warm Soul & RnB – definitely not ‘just another’ love song but a heart expressing itself.
As captivating these sounds and lyrics are, the accompanying visual story, that was just realesed today, is one to be remembered. This very fine-tuned video directed by Gilles Geekk at Kumiko West-End in Brussels and produced by Soultmusiq Vision, trully set the tone for the highly anticipated album.
