Gallant // Open Up
While his debut Zebra EP set Gallant aside as more than just another name floating around soundcloud, it’s been a little over a year since the upcoming LA based singer has made a sound.
Luckily, that silence ended earlier this week as Gallant dropped his latest single, “Open Up”, and after going back to it multiple times, my initial reaction of “wow” still hasn’t subsided. Instead of revisiting the same path that he cut out on his debut, “Open Up” takes a walk in a new direction that builds upon everything Zebra in just about every way. The production is dark and twisted but with Gallant’s smooth and powerful Maxwell esque vocals, listeners will quickly discover that the track is held together by something undeniably gorgeous and passionate.
Gallant made one hell of an impression the first time around and with more new material due out this summer, his name may soon become synonymous when talking about R&B in general.
