Indie R&B singer Bryan Ellis‘s last EP was, unfortunately, aptly named; a Cloud of Unknowing is exactly what’s surrounded it since its August release. Despite its own unwelcoming title, this fresh single (the artist’s first feature) should help the unjustly slept-on set get the attention it deserves. Project collaborator No I.D. handles production duties, cooking up a lush, keyboard-led beat whose intensity slowly builds over the cut’s four-minute running time. Over the Chi-town legend’s tension-fraught beat, Ellis encourages a woman not to put up with her man’s abuse, crooning, “It’s not a necessary pain… just Run Away.” An ear-pleasing jam tackling an important topic, this is just one of many quality cuts to be found on the artist’s latest project, out now online.
