BBC Radio 1 and Clash-approved artist, LOUIS RUSTUM, returns with new single, ‘Watch Me’, via indie label Art People.
‘Watch Me’ blends Rustum’s dynamic fusion of pop, R&B and ethereal beats into a tranquil and confident new offering. Taking inspiration from Frank Ocean, Bon Iver and James Vincent McMorrow, the twilight track shifts between Louis’ tender vocals, neat guitar licks and pensive drum patterns.
The R&B soloist’s music career began in Aarhus in 2014, where he, producer duo Orbit Crew (Carl Barsk and Mathias Lion), and music collective Hukaos (Karl William, Thøger Dixgaard, Tais) put Aarhus on the map as Denmark’s main epicentre of urban R&B. In 2014, Rustum released his critically acclaimed debut EP ‘Tomorrowtonite’ that gained wide recognition amongst native media outlets, becoming the first Danish release to feature on Noisey. It didn’t take long for Louis to find success on an international scale.
Despite this hype, Rustum decided to step back from the limelight, retreating to Malaga with Orbit Crew to develop his sound further, drawing on inspiration from his previous travels in Brazil and his curiosity for 70’s and 80’s R&B/soul.
With an acclaimed EP under his belt, LOUIS RUSTUM returns to the forefront of the future R&B scene…HIGHLY RECOMMENDED – check out ‘Watch Me.’
