Conner Youngblood – Vegas
Conner Youngblood is one of my favourite musicians around at the moment, a very talented multi-instrumentalist that isn;t afraid to experiment with his sound. Most of his releases to date have been softly focused, but in the last few months he’s collaborated with Skizzy Mars to produce The Comedown – some hip hop that even I like, and now he’s released the almost anthemic Vegas.
Written around a guitar riff, Youngblood’s voice is soothing and delicate as ever, but as he sings about needing to break free, Vegas is uplifting about the possibility of breaking out, breaking free, and those green shoots of life. Perfect as ever.
