With their recent releases, up and singer-songwriter Dhyan has demonstrated that whatever kind of urban soundscape they put their mind to, it is executed to perfection.
“Speak of the Devil” isn’t typical of their other releases. But it is a tantalisingly dark feat of RnB Soul which comes with plenty of atmospheric mesmerism. The tonality steeps the soundscape with a sombre bluesy vibe which isn’t too far from what you can expect from artists such as Hozier. Yet, there are still plenty of quintessential RnB Soul elements to grasp to as the smooth mix works its way through its cathartically downtempo duration.
Speak of the Devil is a perfect example of how resonant, raw, and real RnB can be in the 21st century.
