“Pathway”, new from Ethiopian-born singer Saba Abraha, is a cool unexpected swerve on the sound of modern alt R&B. On the track, which we’re very pleased to premiere here at B3, Abraha both melodically and in the song’s arrangement takes her time allowing “Pathway”‘s pacing to introduce mood and echo thematically its lyrical narrative. A narrative Abraha says, “is a reminder to take off the armor and to trust whole-heartedly without fear.” We’re digging the approach and the song’s refreshing sound.
