Booth newcomer Times New Roman may take his name from the quintessential default font, but don’t get it twisted—there’s nothing generic about his style. As proof, I present Passion, the latest single off the Royal Oak, Michigan singer/songwriter and beatsmith’s recently-released “demo tape.” Roman handles both vocal and production duties on this cut, a breezy, midtempo ode to summer love. To back his own steamy, yet understated verses, he crafts a mellow instrumental driven by languid guitar chords and hip hop-tinged percussion. A stuttering vocal sample enhances the joint’s unique vibe. Interest piqued? More fresh cuts await on Satisfaction, available now for download via the artist’s official site.
