If you know Rocki Evans through the soulfully lush grooves of Lipstick Regrets and Shape of My Heart, or the exuberant pop stylings of Fantastic, prepare for a shock. Is it still a shock if you’re prepared for it? Uh, I’ll have to think about that one…. But the point is, on Woman, leak numero uno off his forthcoming street album, the up-and-coming crooner sets aside the synths and samples in favor of something a little – OK, a lot – more bare-bones. Syienze mans the boards on this minimalistic ballad, crafting an instrumental that’s little more than a few rolling acoustic guitar riffs as Rocki expresses his all-consuming, damned-near-existential longing for a certain female:“I need you here, under my skin…” Simple but memorable, this bluesy cut is proof that Evans can keep listeners’ rapt attention without all the bells and whistles – no easy task. While Simply Twisted isn’t set to drop till the first quarter of 2011, fans fiending for more should be sure to check out his Booth-sponsored Songs About Girls mixtape, released earlier this year and available here for free streaming and download.
