Last month (March 29, 2019), vocalist and producer Sôra released her newest single titled ‘Unchained’. Click on the youtube link below.
If you’re not familiar with her collaboration with fellow producer Uppermost, the bi-cultural Sôra (mother’s British roots and father’s French lineage) cites influences from artists such as Erykah Badu, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams, Hiatus Kayiote, and Kendrick Lamar, Sôra’s sound lies at the intersection of electro and soul. Drawing parallels to acts like FKA Twigs, CocoRosie, Tove Lo and My Brightest Diamond. With this track, although she has a neo-soul style that works especially with the chorus, at times the swagger in between made me reconsider if this track was too hard, but if sites like Tasty, Chill Masters and Chill Vibes are providing support, then i’ll stick with my first impression – and especially how the spacey loops and minimalist, sensual invoking piano keys balanced it under a mellifluous vibe.
The single is released by Colligence Records.
