Here’s something a little different from what we typically cover here, but which has us properly entranced. From Los Angeles, RKCB specializes in an indie-soul sound that sounds a bit retro, in all the good ways. Their music has a futuristic vibe as well and is definitely steeped in synthesizers but, unlike most other music in that genre, it’s rather minimalist, tasteful and doesn’t take away from the smooth as molasses warmth of the vocals. Rather, it enhances it. Nice job, guys. Their latest single is “Future Being.”
If you like what you hear, they’ve also released their 6-track Short Films EP, which is available as a free download.
