Taken from the soon to drop EP Delilah, Often is a smooth blend of sultry, up to the minute R&B grooves, ambient pop vibes and sensual electronica. It runs on a platform of floating synths and skittering beats, a blend which brings just enough pace and structure to the drifting sonics but which never gets in the way of its gentle, ambient infectiousness.
The vocals seem to become part of the instrumentation, matching the smooth deliveries note for note, running almost just below the surface, close high enough that they can be heard but embedded sufficiently that they don’t jar with the musical platform which gives them wings.
Often is a soft and charming tune, one which feels equally at home in the early hours, clubland chill-out zone and on late-night radio as it does in creating the perfect mood and moment emanating from your own stereo.
Conclusion? Chilled and charming in equal measure. A job well done
