From the first verse of Jair Cobbs’ latest single “Needle to my Skin” the commercial potential hits you – that unmistakable sense of effortless talent, command of vocal harmony and contemporarily infectious beats. Jair Cobbs reinvents the slow and sonorous R&B Soul sound with an infusion of Trap, the 808s provide the structure for the reverb-soaked synth melodies which are perfectly produced all too easy to slip into.
Needle to my Skin is just one of the standout singles to feature on the San Angelo, US-based artist’s latest self-titled album in which each track explores a new emotion, with lyrics which are just as immersive as the flow behind the beats on the album, his debut album certainly packs the emotive punch.
