After an absorbing spoken-word prelude, Dom Reynolds’ latest single “Jealousy” kicks off as a cathartically indulgent Blues Pop soundscape which will enamour fans of John Cooper Clarke and RnB Soul alike.
That may be a slightly unexpected pairing of styles. Yet Dom Reynolds’ experimental Funk-addled style is all the more captivating for the fact that he’s aurally ripped up the rulebook.
Charlotte Neal’s strong, yet smooth harmonic vocals work alongside the deadpan spoken-word delivery throughout the track. Which not only creates a potent amount of collaborative chemistry but also ensures that the lyrics resonate with maximum impact.
The ambient slow jam comes with a nuanced infusion of Psych. When Jealousy is in full flow, you’ll be suitably mesmerised by the colourfully warm tones.
