Song of the Day: Silence – Little Grace

Northern contemporary R&B three-piece, LITTLE GRACE,  has linked up with producers and songwriters  XamVolo, Tee Soulful and Danny Casio for their latest single, ‘Silence’, a delicate yet impactful track, that appreciates moments of silence in a society full of deafening distractions.

Based in North West England, LITTLE GRACE sits in a landscape where the R&B scene is growing slightly behind the South of the country. However, although still in their infancy, the trio have worked with some notable names, including Bristol-based drum & bass producer TC, German producer and DJ Robin Schulz and Liverpool based XamVolo, who is also currently making waves in the Northern R&B scene.

In each of their previous singles, LITTLE GRACE has presented an original nostalgic sound that takes elements from their influences in Motown, 80’s synth pop and post 2000’s electronic and R&B. Building a catalogue of music that captures everyday life, their lyrics are honest and unfiltered, storytelling through smooth vocals.

I’m telling you RIGHT NOW, you guys are in for a treat! So before you head out, have a listen to the stunning ‘Silence’ below:

New Track: Range Rover – Sub Blue

Liverpool’s most exciting Alt-R&B prospect, SUB BLUE, shares another slice of his life with ‘Range Rover’, produced by Xamvolo.

Taking his name from his self-described style of music, “suburban blues”, SUB BLUE offers a fresh take on chilled out, alternative introspective R&B. Following up his hypebeast inspired debut ‘Hype Like Supreme’, the Merseyside based singer-songwriter delivers another scene setting song – giving a further insight into his world. The visual to ‘Hype Like Supreme’ currently holds the blog’s Music Video of the Month title.

‘Range Rover’ features Sub Blue’s velvety smooth vocals over moody production as he laments on the challenges that him and his peers experience trying to make sense of their world where perception is often more important than truth and happiness is often represented by superficial things.

‘Range Rover’ is the first song taken from his forthcoming EP, ‘Suburban View’, which delves into these themes even more. The EP is produced by the likes of Sir Dylan (Weeknd, Solange, Logic), A.V (Frank Ocean) and XamVolo, and is a glimpse at the life of teens trying to find their place in the world, while navigating peer and social pressure and trying to define their own voice.

New Music Video: Hype Like Supreme – Sub Blue

Electronic soul/ R&B newcomer SUB BLUE released a visual to accompany new single ‘Hype Like Supreme’.

Speaking of the new production he says: “The aim here was to simply show the blurred lines between hype and true love. It’s another flip on the chorus lyrics. This culture is real – its pretty much the same level of infatuation and emotion that you would usually equate to love or a mad crush”

‘Hype Like Supreme’ is the first track taken from his new EP, out in 2018. It was produced by British soul artist and producer XamVolo.

SUB BLUE grew up in the suburbs of Merseyside in the North of England. He was named the first ever ‘One to watch’ by Liverpool International Music Festival’s Academy, he was just leaving school at the time. Since then he’s been honing his sound with local talent including XamVolo, Teesoulful and SPXKEN and putting the final touches to his debut EP.
