Well, the buzz is on as the Swedish soulstress continues to impress us with her second single.
SEINABO SEY HARD TIME (Universal) @@@@
There’s something dark and somehat twisted about Seinabo Sey’s recordings so far. In her debut single from last year, Younger, those racing drums and that ominous organ, gave us much chills down my back as much as the beauty of the song overwhelmed me. In Hard time the striking and haunting vocals of Seinabo together with the back drop of those subtle and slightly distorted slavelike choirs gives this superb track a spooky framing. This very well could be the future of Swedish R&B. It was a long time age since something this powerful hade a “made-in-Sweden”-label attached to it. Adding on to that a somewhat scary video and all is complete.
