New Music: faye meana "Don't Pretend"

The thing I love about Don’t Pretend is that constant looped kick pattern driving it out of the all-too-frequent neo-soul slump. And don’t get me wrong, I’m an absolute sucker slow ballad-y piano-based side of the genre, but damn there’s a lot of it going around. Beautiful vocal phrasing with super minimal and effortlessly tasteful instrumentation - this new one from London’s Faye Meana is real pleasure to put on repeat. With a few more touches of Americana in her latest EP Nothing’s The Same - Faye's sound will make you fall in love with neo-soul all over again.
