War (Part 1)
So is Raury a left-of-center rapper? An adventurous singer/songwriter? An audacious new R&B star? This genre-bending debut EP proves he’s really all three at once, as well as a thrilling selection for our 2015 New Artist Spotlight. Across the six tracks of Indigo Child, you’ll hear echoes of Prince’s psychedelic funk, the intimate soul music of Bill Withers, N.E.R.D.’s quirky brand of hip-hop, and Miguel’s spacy slow jams. Yet from the gospel-tinged moodiness of “God’s Whisper” to the hard-rocking intensity of “Amor,” Raury’s offbeat style is all his own. Indigo Child is packed with enough unpredictable ideas to fuel a whole album.
