Agency – Exponents [EP]

The neo-soul duo Agency has put out “Exponents”, an EP full of experimental and meandering R&B. The fourth track off the release, “is there some other version of my story?,” is full of polyphonies that billow in and out of a brooding dissonance. With the fuzzy organ backing, there’s an undeniable Frank Ocean resemblance. And yet its sound is still fresh—not without its own center of gravity. Stream “Is There Some Other Version of My Story?” from “Exponents” below.

Haich – Peak

The London producer Haich is back with another kaleidoscopic alt R&B single. In just 4 minutes, the artist layers a sophisticated microcosm of analog synths grinding against sampled vocal harmonies. A high pitched loop arpeggiates, giving voice to a kind of synthetic apprehension. “Peak” is dark, poignant, and gloriously dystopian.

Shaqdi – Obvious

A new favorite around B3-World is UK singer Shaqdi. “Obvious”, Shaqdi’s latest song – a dreamy R&B-tinged track, does well by its low-touch rhythm track and synth stabs to frame up and showcase her excellent alto vocals. “Obvious” is out now.
