Whilst Urban Latin Jazz isn’t commonly described as haunting, the quivering notes of the violin contained within David Seymour’s latest single “Cuban Bars” allowed the urban cool vibes to take a totally new tonality.
Multi-layered beats may be commonplace, yet not many musicians are able to compose arrangements which hit you with melancholy and an alluringly arrestingly melody at the same time.
With Johanna Martin’s indulgently sultry vocals added to the experimental arrangement, Cuban Bars set the scene of a smoky Havana bar. In short, Cuban Bars is aural escapism. The fluidly contemporary masterpiece carries the perfect amount of ambience to allow you to sink into the sound completely.
So, for those who appreciate an evocatively resounding yet downtempo sound, you can check out David Seymour’s latest single Cuban Bars for yourselves by heading over to YouTube now.
