Don’t mean to give the game away too early here – but you’re going to read about one of the most promising artists coming out of the UK – SUB BLUE. Just the announcement of his latest EP thrilled me with excitement…cannot believe it’s taken me so long to write a review – but here goes…
At such a young age (I think he’s in his early twenties), the liverpublican mastered his spin on R&B, incorporating mostly atmospheric electronic, hip-hop-esque (as featured in track ‘Summer’) and experimental tones. I have to admit I was expecting some of the moody and bluesy stuff from his previous offerings ‘Hype Like Supreme’. However ‘Take A Picture’ filled that personal satisfaction with its tilitating take of 90s R&B (think Usher).
Having said that, the experimental tones are a great contributor to this set and sees the youngster pushing the boundaries a little further with the soulful genre. This guy is not to be tossed away by the wasteside – and nor is his EP.
