If South African Pop artist Lucas J has evaded your radar so far, the perfect introduction to their soulful approach to Indie Synth Pop is their standout 2020 single Stereo.
The cathartically immersive rhythmic grooves paired with Lucas J’s sweet and succinct vocals allows Stereo to offer immediate accessibility alongside a smorgasbord of sentimentality. The emotion thrown into the mix may be striking, but with the smooth, polished and radio-ready production, Stereo will greet you with nothing but accordance.
The lyrics are playful and light and there’s plenty of lyrical wit to ensure that Stereo offers resonance whether you’re listening to the track for the 1st time or the 100th.
You can check out Stereo for yourselves by heading over to Spotify.
