In the promotional material accompanying Roses Gabor‘s Girls Music debut single, the record is described as, “a song for clubs and night bus journeys alike.” It’s tough to imagine a track equally appropriate for both of those situations but, believe it or not, the London alt-R&B artist seems to have succeeded in melding those two disparate vibes on the newly-released Stars. That’s thanks in large part to beatsmith Redlight, who wreathes warm keyboard voices and reverb-drenched percussion in shifting layers of synth dissonance to create one of the most unique instrumentals I’ve heard in a minute, but Gabor contributes to the atmosphere in her own right, lacing the beat with minimal verses and a fragmentary, studio-tweaked chorus. Director Natalia Stuyk ties the package together with some trippy, computer-generated visuals. Interest piqued? While Stars is just a promo release, you can keep your browsers locked to The DJBooth for more from this innovative R&B songstress.
