Maneuvering The Perilous Depths Of Heartbreak And Ecstasy. Skin Towns Bewitching R&b Pop Stunner The Room Approaches The Elusive Mysteries Of Desire And Longing With Directness And Urgency.
Unabashedly romantic (and delightfully hedonistic), the LA-based outfit's modern R&B may sit alongside nicely with contemporary hitmakers like The-Dream or Mike Will Made It, but they align closer to the to the freakiness of Ginuwine, Adina Howard, and Silk juxtaposed against feather-weight synth trails of new age. There is a narcotic pull in Nick Turco's (synth/keys man for Zola Jesus) lean, spacious productions that serves as the perfect foil for Grace Hall's commandingly astonishing voice, which guides you throughout The Room, alternating between sinister sultriness and breathtaking sweetness.
