Newtimers: “Trains”

Saw this pop up on St. Lucia’s twitter feed and thought that if this guy listens to it, it can’t be half bad. I was wrong, it is amazing. “Trains” has got a quite nice r&b funk feel to it before it completely switches up into this Boyz II Men piano breakdown.

"Trains" is from the Ego EP, listen here

When Disclosure tweeted about this London singer (signed to PMR along with Disclosure and Jessie Ware) they used the description “future/michael jackson”… and they were kinda right. Dornik’s “Something About You” is a shimmery synthy rnb cut and just sounds right.
