Futurist R&B and black widow romance relieved by fresh dirt and crushed blacks – bleak, lo-fi visuals for the beautifully written and sung ‘Shotgun’. Fragile verses and a pumping hook, Torontorian producer KLSH seems to have a thing for curious build-and-drops. A skeletal bed of digital cool sits under Jordan‘s vocal, carried home by her deft neo-classicist 90s/early 00s songwriting. Where he brings the rhythm, she really brings the blues, and this has to be an album highlight for capturing melodic stylism and pairing it with a post-Timbo prog’ness, albeit the simplest, most seductive elements.
