Get excited people: Children of Zeus’s debut album is on the way! (audio)
By now, it should be plainly obvious that Children of Zeus are among my favorite acts at the moment. Their perfect blend of neo-soul mixed with a dash of retro R&B and hip-hop is exactly the sort of thing that’s right up my alley. So naturally I got extremely hyped to learn that their debut album Travel Light is on the way, and if this new track “All On You” is anything to go by, it might end up being one of my favorite albums of the year.
“All On You” doesn’t really explore that much new territory for the duo; it’s still full of soulful vocals, solid UK raps (something I’m not usually a fan of but these guys definitely do it better than most), over a laid back, chilled instrumental stuffed with Rhodes keys, some synth-y textures, and some snap-heavy staggered drums. But just because you explore the familiar doesn’t make it bad, especially when you do it as confidently and as compellingly as the way these guys do it. Definitely excited to hear what else these guys have in store on the rest of the album!
Children of Zeus’s Travel Light is out on First Word Records on July 13th!
