Bedrooms is a mighty appropriate name for SWIMS’ debut. I drift away in my bedroom, listening to this new duo out of London and their misty weightless R&B pop. Its soft hip hop caress and infectious melody carry me into the clouds, bringing along a melancholic undercurrent brimming with late night aching and yearning. Bedrooms is a cotton fleecy debut that leaves me craving for more SWIMS.

It’s been but a few months since Canadian newcomer Ursa Major first surfaced with stunning debut, Dusk, and he’s now unleashed a debut EP too. The 19 year old singer songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer from Toronto has crafted a five track compendium of moving R&B named Lo-Fi Sky. The title track is a simmering ballad with much ornate detail, its somber disposition and spaciously textured atmosphere reflective of the true grandeur and power of seemingly simplistic details we overlook in every day life. The DIY artist recorded his EP wherever he could, whenever creativity struck. Ursa Major calls his art psychedelic R&B. His music encapsulates those long sleepless nights when you’re sullenly stuck in your own head. All you want to do is trek out into the dark where you can lose yourself gazing deeply into the starlit sky. Yet, a bright orange sun prepares to rise from afar, bringing with it the warmth of hope.
