We picked out Bobby Uzóma’s forthcoming EP as one of 2017’s most anticipated records back at the start of the year. Then we waited and still are waiting.

The EP is still a work in progress, and we completely understand that good things take time. In the meantime, we’re delighted that Bobby has decided to reward our patience with a single, “Alone”, which is officially out today, and we have the honour to premiere.

The Toronto-via-Calgary singer-songwriter has one of those rare voices that would ooze emotion even if he were singing the laundry list. “Alone” is not a laundry list; it’s a beautifully structured soul symphony, layering atmospherics to give the perfect vessel for Bobby’s smooth vocals. Simultaneously edgy and laid back with a pulsing heartbeat, the song is mood-enhancing music. Be careful what you bring to it because – happy or sad, joyous or depressed – it will multiply.

Less electro and more experimental than his previous offering, “Holy Grails”, Bobby continues to intrigue with vocals threaded intimately through tune. His online persona is similarly tantalizing, preferring photographic aesthetic to descriptive prose with a notable absence of the hyperbole that emerging musicians are usually keen to share. This is a man who lets his music do the talking. We hope to hear more soon. Meanwhile, take a listen to “Alone” via the link below.
