Echoey tropical vibes on this new Men Among Boys “PurpleBlack” tune. Finding bits of Frank Ocean here, which we inevitably love.
Stockholm and London based singer/songwriter Erik Hassle impresses with his soulful new single, “Talk About It.” Loving the production, too – quite reminiscent of the mood on Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange.
Look out for 2014 North American tour dates coming soon as well!
Drawing a sample from Sade’s “No Ordinary Love,” London singer Azekel creates his own song of the same name. The ambient nature of the track and slight electronic alteration of vocals gives a feel very reminiscent of Frank Ocean that we gladly welcome.
Azekel’s debut EP, Circa, drops October 28.
Los Angeles singer/songwriter and producer Sunni Colòn has released his The Els’ Flowers EP and it’s sounding mighty right. The opening guitar strings on the sparse “Earth” track along with subtle, lo-fi, echoey vocals immediately set a tone analogous to Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange. The EP is strong front to back and the perfect mood music for a chill Friday evening.
This guy is incredible. Vicktor Taiwò falls somewhere between James Blake and Frank Ocean on this “Digital Kids” track featuring Solomon. The haunt of his echoey vocals mixed with the vibrating electronic production feels transcendent.
Listen to “Digital Kids” below as well as the lulling and gorgeous “Only Love” where Vicktor covers Ben Howard. Here, he’s sounding something like a cross between Miguel and John Legend. We need more of this guy yesterday.
