Happy Valentine’s Day from Helen Leicht – get free downloads of Philly Local love songs [link]
Back in early March we wrote about a new electronic, soul, and R&B influenced duo from Philly called Elegant Animals. They’re back with a new single called “A Ghost” that is going to be included on a compilation released in June by Human Kindness Overflowing, a charity organization that raises money and collects food for people in need. “”A Ghost” is a sweeping, orchestrated R&B gem that owes as much to the modern day darksoul of The Weeknd as it does to some of those timeless slow jam classics by Jodeci. Listen below.
Elegant Animals is a new electronic-, soul-, and R&B-influenced band from Philly. The band just released its Spectrum Nocturnal EP, which you can download for free. The band includes Jules Kazys on vocals and Brandon Shockley on guitar. The excellent production on the record uses samples and warm keyboards, with hints of dub step influenced rhythms. Spectrum Nocturnal is a terrific collection that musically connects the dots between the dark electronic soul of The Weeknd, the intimacy of James Blake, and the Quiet Storm jams of The Isley Brothers. Highly recommended.
