It’s been a long time since we’ve been so mesmerised by a debut release, but this one from Leicester-based singer-songwriter and producer SOACH really is something special.
There’s plenty going on here – mixing elements of dark electronica with alt-rock and R&B, plus SOACH’s versatile vocals that switch between his natural tone as well as a fine-tuned falsetto. As a starting point single, frankly it’s absurdly good. His distinctive vocals and melodic flare combine on the track taken from the upcoming EP Bad Summer and which lyrically explores the themes of melancholy, betrayal and hurt. If this is an indicator of what’s to come then we’ll be making that a priority listen.
