UK-based R&B songwriter Mulini has released his new track MANIC from his debut EP ‘Night Time’.
It’s a strong, sombre performance with Mulini’s working-class-James-Blake-style vocals rising out of an airy synthy soundscape. His dark-sky, windy pop is well-written, and well produced, with MANIC showcasing a fair bit of potential from the alt-R&B artist on here. It has that right amount of moany-crooning throughout, and a strong choice for that listening indoors and staring out the window vibe.
The standout is most notably his vibrato performance – it skillfully wavers through the first verse and coalesces into a chorus with an almost-unintended catchiness to it that helped give this track multiple listens. MANIC is well worth one of those listens for fans of this kind of sombre, melancholic sad-pop.
