This review was originally published in August of 2018.
With an intro passage reminiscent of Stevie Wonder to start off, Sasha Keable then goes straight to a deep roots groove, with a beautifully-intonated acoustic bass and a vocal style that feels like jazz and soul, all at once, glazed with a classy ennui.
It is a powerful combination: the thick bass notes, with a companion track of trills, moving with that power of call and response, matching the drum kit at every note. And the voice feels dangerous: easy to love, hard to forget. It's got that mysterious feminine power, the real-talk wrapped in melody, like an old summer hit from Lauryn Hill.
Sasha Keable is a promising young singer-songwriter from south London. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
