The semi-indie, furtively-monikered West Coast R&B artist Blackbear released a new single, “4u”, via SoundCloud this past weekend. Assembled by producer Kizzo, the 2:38 track features a plush electronic instrumental; a ditzy, flickering backdrop for the singer’s afflicted state of heart: “You thought I wouldn’t come around to you, You know I was down for you/ Now I’m wishing that I never bowed to you…”. The little glint of pop-y heartbreak isn’t even three minutes, but the pulsingly addictive, e-drum ‘n’ bass beat doesn’t leave the brain until long after.
Blackbear’s upcoming project/mixtape, ‘+deadroses’ has been marked for a Valentine’s Day 2015 arrival date.
