It’s no news that electro-infused neo-soul is in high production, but sometimes a new artist comes along that seems to add a new dimension to the expansive genre. Toronto’s A L L I E is one of the latest, but she’s hardly just a woman of the moment. That voice, a bit reminiscent of a young Alicia Keys, is fused with the synth and reverb productions of her longtime collaborator and fellow Canadian 2nd Son; it makes for some instantly accessible R&B that's of-the-moment, but maybe also worthy of permanence. A L L I E’s EP Strange Creature, which 2nd Son produced, dropped on Bandcamp in November of last year, and the duo just followed up with the tropical and seductive “Private Island." Stream that song below.
