New Track: Please Don’t Ever Settle Down – Dear Rogue

DEAR ROGUE‘s new deluxe edition of their album, ‘Phases’ ( CLICK HERE TO LISTEN), documents both the emotional depths Drew and Danielle McTaggart plumbed to come up with unflinchingly personal, honest material, and the ground they covered in their efforts to push themselves sonically and aesthetically.

With the release of the album, the duo includes an airy, echoing, minimalistic new single, ‘Please Don’t Ever Settle Down’, check it out below:

New Track: 24/7 – Kwaku (ft. Late Boomers Club)

After featuring on Spotify’s Fresh Finds, KWAKU returns with his mellow R&B/pop laden single‘24/7’, released last Friday (March 8th) via Tunecore. Featuring Late Boomers Club, KWAKU‘s brand new offering is tipped to be his best work to date.

After some encouragement from friends and family, the Boston-based singer/songwriter came onto the radar back in 2015 with his debut single, ‘That’s the Way’ –  and since then, he’s been unstoppable. His previous single ‘Fake’ received support from Spotify, being featured on playlists ‘Fresh Finds’ and ‘Fresh Finds: The Wave’.

Check out the slamming single below…and if you’re feeling this joint, the best is yet to come via his project, dropping later in the year.

Album Review: New Soul – Gold Complex

It took three years for Canadian band GOLD COMPLEX to perfect and defined their sound for their latest album, ‘New Soul’.

The album introduces, what can be described as, alternative R&B with a luscious lick of funk featured through single, ‘Homegirl’ and goes on to flaunt between various bluesy/nu soul elements  working in unison with the occasional presence of progressive pop/rock with questionably a hint of EDM (heard in single, ‘Meant to Dance.’)

From what I can remember, ‘New Soul’ is a slight shift from their neo-soul-centred signature, displayed in their previous self-titled album. Although there’s more elements of contrasting tones, the arrangements are still as harmonic as ever – pull together by those killer soulful vocals.
