Walking that line between classic soul and a more modern jazz-pop, Conor Gains uses his earthy voice to make everything all right. Starting out with some Hozier-style cooing, he moves quickly to a deep groove with some horns, finger snaps, and some interval-walking from that buttery bass.

It's a narrative of the chase, that age-old premise of looking for a little something new. Conor Gains, with his single I Know, weaves the love of philosophy into the philosophy of love; metaphors have always been sexy, but these lyrics are straight-up smoove:

“energy has it’s seasons
from your summer soul to your winter skin”— Conor Gains
