5 Songs, 15 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

These five tracks clearly show the hazy methodology of emotive alt-R&B singer Blackbear. The EP opens with the vague blips and bleeps of “Girls Like U” before the singer’s pristine vocals emerge from the smoke and shadows. Underpinning his dark expressionism are sharp pop instincts. The infectious hook on “Suckerz” rises around the murky synths, rasping drum machines, and heavily skewered backing vocal loops, adding up to work that blurs the lines of twisted and beautiful.
