'Breathe Again' With Brother Zulu and Theo Anderson
All it took was 'Three Easy Pieces' for us to fall for the dreamy euphony of the U.K.'s Brother Zulu earlier in the year. With their so-named debut EP providing a superbly polished selection of contemporary r&b that was as mellifluously luxuriant on the ear as it was blissfully soothing to the soul, they soon had us happily drifting away on their eclectically inspired vibe. That a debut EP could be so accomplished was no surprise, however, given the pedigree of the dynamic duo that is the driving force behind Brother Zulu: Max Tuohy was previously signed to RCA at 16 and has performed alongside the likes of Jason Mraz, Dizzee Rascal, Ed Sheeran, Newton Faulkner, Ellie Goulding and Eliza Doolittle, while jazz pianist and classically trained flautist Lawrence Ajadi has played under the likes of Robert Glasper and Riaan Vosloo.
Returning once again with to wash over the listener with their tranquil vibe, they have now teamed up with Theo Anderson in the pursuit of 'embarking on an exploration of altered states'. Over a jazzily cascading piano, subtly murmuring bassline, wobbly pulse and mellow keys, Anderson's bars - accompanied by the velvet, dreamy soul of Tuohy's vocal accents, motifs and main hook - flow with a honeyed cadence as his sub-conscious dissolves into a giddily intoxicated reverie.
