Reliably informed

Jenna Learoyd’s Lost In The Smoke has a late night RnB vibe to it. A track like this lives and dies by its precision, and every aspect of this track is so clean you could eat your tea off it. The subtle, smooth bass line, the lush modestly overdriven guitar parts, snapping drums, and backing vocals that blend exquisitely into one sound. All of these elements support a vocal that is assured in its dextrous grip on the melody.

As the vocal lilts up into the falsetto range, all that RnB influence becomes apparent, but without ever going off the rails in that over the top melismatic way great singers of this genre can often do, so the voice is left to deliver a set of lyrics in a manner that sounds sincere as well as sublime.
