New Release: Autre Ne Veut – Anxiety

Last night, NYC homegrown R&B singer Autre Ne Veut paused and stared out over the crowd, seemingly moved by the sea of fans that had sold-out Santos Party House. After acknowledging his fans he confidently brought down the house, closing his astonishing forty-five minute set with his break out single Counting. It was his biggest show yet, in an exciting week that saw the release of his second album Anxiety on the Mexican Summer’s Software imprint. An album which was immediately given Best New Music status (8.5) by Pitchfork. It’s highly emotional content is coined by the singer’s experimental melodies over heavy 80esque synths and bass productions. If you haven’t heard it yet, you can now stream it on Spotify.
