Drawing on turn of the century influenced R&B, album number two from Erika de Casier offers a vocal collection that is sultry, personable, and resilient. The beauty of that era of R&B was the genre’s ability to turn out tracks that maintain momentum while still acting like slow jams. It’s a vibe that de Casier nails effortlessly here. While de Casier’s vocals tend towards soft, intimate closeness the production lends weight with rhythms designed to groove.
Even taken individually both come with substance and the end result is a series of Pop leaning tracks with depth, immediacy and the space to allow de Casier’s entrancing vocals to draw the listener in.
