Award-Winning musician Vincent Lima has released yet another resoundingly raw single with “Albany”. Any fans of the darkly alluring mesmerism of Tom Waits and Richard Hawley are going to want to jump on the singer songwriter’s first release in 2020.
There’s a unique tenderness to Albany, it’s rare for tenderness to accompany deep cavernously evocative tonality, but Vincent Lima has proven that the aural elements make for a potently alchemic mix. If you could imagine what it would sound like if Bill Ryder-Jones and Nick Cave collaborated together, you may get an idea of what Albany has to offer.
Yet, the distinction truly lies in the singer songwriter’s ability to lace the soundscape with a brand-new contemporary resonance through the infusion of nuancedly melancholic Pop.
The pensively deep quivering notes against the deep reverberance of Vincent Lima’s vocals in a cinematic production is something we’ll never forget. And we’re pretty sure that you won’t either.
You can listen to Albany for yourselves by heading over to Spotify.
