Up and coming artist gmj. has recently made their soulful genre-mashing debut with the 3-track EP “morning breakthrough.”
Each of the singles is as experimentally captivating as the last. But the perfect introduction to gmj.’s instrumentally hypnotic yet blisteringly raw lyrical approach to production is the single “Children in the Rain”.
Children in the Rain starts by unfolding as your fairly archetypal RnB ballad. Yet, the familiarity which is found in the prelude and former verses slips away and creative ingenuity starts to build in its place.
As the track progresses, cuttingly sharp Indie tones are infused to completely transform the soundscape. It was a transfixing listening experience to hear the discord being thrown into the mix after such a mellifluous start. gmj. is undoubtedly one to watch.
