London’s Azekel follows up from his 2015 release of ‘Raw, Vol 1’ with the dark and moody, neo-soul laced vibe, ‘Linger’.
Recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studios, ‘Linger’ is lifted from Azekel’s up and coming follow-up project ‘Raw, Vol 2’. The production on ‘Linger’ is so hypnotising and traditionally R&B in sound, yet influences of blues and jazz are heard clearly throughout. Personally, it’s that falsetto though that won me over, with Azekel dropping his now renowned falsetto in the song, navigating his heartbreak that’s almost haunting him – her touch is still lingering.
While ‘Raw, Vol 2’ is set for release later this year, Azekel is set to perform in Hyde Park this summer alongside Massive Attack at the British Summer Time festival. In case you aren’t heading over to BST this year, press play on ‘Linger’ below and patiently wait for that follow-up project!
