R&B Newcomer Leroybroughtflowers unveils nostalgic track, ‘Self Defence’

After his latest single claimed a spot in the Spotify editorial playlist ‘New Music Friday’, R&B/ Lo-fi newcomer LEROYBROUGHTFLOWERS makes a return with the first single off his debut EP ‘Self Defence’. Having received support from the likes of BBC, Acid Stag and an exclusive premiere of ‘Self Defence’ on NOTION magazine, the artist has been tipped off by industry experts as one to watch.

With a range of the octaves and a background on jazz music, the singer/songwriter is inspired by the sound of older decades giving them a modern interpretation of both singing, rapping and a signature subtle combination of both. Driven by interesting vocal melodies and subtle harmonies, ‘Self Defence’ is an homage to 90s/00s R&B and hip-hop music not stepping away from the lo-fi chillhop sound creating a unique combination.

The atmosphere of the relaxing lo-fi instrumental leaves space for complex rhythmic patterns and interesting lyrics as Leroybroughtflowers croons about trying to get over someone but somehow they manage to slip into your dreams. Although the dreams presents the happiest moments, sadness takes over when face with reality. The artist’s R&B approach on the song makes the tune fresh and weirdly energetic as the hook has a great catchy mid-tempo groove.

‘Self Defence’ is out now across various platforms…check it out below…
