LAPP – “Sunny”

There’s a grittiness in LAPP’s voice that make you want to reach for the Dyson (other cleaning devices are available) and clean it out. Half-way through the track you’ll be trying to implant back, such are the strange twists which occur during this track.

Posturing initially as a typical eazy-soul track, it switches to sleazy lounge almost imperceptibly, a wonderfully skillful move which really sets this apart from the crowd. When the saxophone kicks in towards the song’s crescendo, we’re in full red-lightbulb mode and there’s a huge temptation to pull the curtains to keep out prying eyes.

The real promise shown in this track isn’t, oddly, the voice, supremely flexible and sand-papery though it is; it’s the instrumentation, which harks back at least 40 years to bands of session musicians who could nail a take in one every single time. The greasy, succulent swagger of this song is such that if you’re not seduced, you’re already beyond resurrection.

‘Runaw’y’: The new genre-bending track from Pimlican

Fusing a number of genres including pop, rap, R&B and hip-hop, Pimlican is an open artist who collaborates with anyone who is willing to bring something fresh and new to his collective.

Such a musical approach breaks down any genre-defining boxes, helping Pimlican create a style of music that is free of restraint and limits. It is this style that has seen him earn airplay on Tom Robinson’s Radio 6 show, as well as BBC Introducing and BBC Radio Leeds.

Having released ‘B’ck 4 More/P’lya’ in May, Pimlican have returned with ‘Runaw’y’ which is powered by a killer vocal hook and a pulsating beat. Along with this, a unique rap section adds texture and originality to the track.
