It's a thoughtful shuffle-stick-jam with synth poured over the top like so much Cognac.

It's about consciousness, people: improv, poetry, and the moment before fear, that clear aesthetic. Perhaps serving as a proxy for clarity, or as a visceral temporary life inside the mind of an artist, this is an experiment in sound and language, and thus emotion.

With an advanced technical sense of polyrhythm and a soul-drenched vocal style, Saba Abraha again shows us how to follow our own light, creating a mix of styles between RnB and Soul. It's a thoughtful shuffle-stick-jam with synth poured over the top like so much Cognac.

Saba Abraha is a soul singer-songwriter originally from Ethiopia. This song is featured on our Lost Treasure - Soul playlist.
