Earlier this year, I raved about James Vincent McMorrow’s album Post Tropical. He’s a folkster who’s managed to marry the genre well with hints of RnB and electro. I’m seeing a couple of artists who are doing the same thing, and Josh Record is one of those people who have done it well.
A British singer-songwriter, Josh studied music in London. He first garnered recognition for his track “For Your Love”, an incredibly sensual track that showcases Record’s beautiful falsetto. The lines “It’s all for love / All for love / I will do anything for your love” may read a bit cheesy, but the sense of desperation in Record’s voice makes it effective.
The first track that I listened to was “Bones” though, now included in his recently released album Pillars. It’s more fluid and relaxed, less needy and confident with the lines, “My love with clothe your bones.” Listen to the song here:
