Loyle Carner – Ottolenghi (feat. Jordan Rakei)
Listen on Spotify HERE
British native Loyle Carner never ceases to produce music that evokes a feeling of nostalgia and warmth that can only be described as genuine. In his latest release “Ottolenghi” featuring vocals from New Zealand artist Jordan Rakei, Carner turns the simple act of riding the train into a sort of window where we can break down small interactions into meaningful experiences. A dreamy beat with subtle strings hiding in the background, a simple snare, and hi-hat constitute the raw scene that Carner sets with “Ottolenghi”, resulting in that exact type of song you might break a smile to in your car at night as you drive home.
With tracks like Ottolenghi and his collabs with artists like Tom Misch and Rejjie Snow, Loyle Carner has emerged as a strong force in the British rap scene with his unique style and flow. His album “Yesterday’s Gone” is a thoughtful and well-made freshman album, and with much more to come, Carner is most definitely an artist to be on the watch for.
In a world of fast thrills and fleeting feeling, Loyle Carner makes something real you can grab a hold of.
