James Fauntleroy - "A Beautiful Mind" + "The Children Of Love"
James Fauntleroy continues his streak of melancholic r&b infused acoustic ballads with two new offerings in “A Beautiful Mind” and “The Children Of Love.” Though we’ve got to hold up our late pass on “The Children Of Love”– as the track technically came to us last week–in tandem with his latest drop “A Beautiful Mind,” it seems the madman behind the boards is gearing up for a strictly acoustic release tentatively (and aptly) titled String Theory.
While these latest installments boast the infectious simplicity in composition and hook-building brilliance of last week’s drop, these new gems have a distinctively bluesier flavor to them with a more rich set of vocal layering on his airy croon, recalling his work with –dare I say– Frank Ocean. No word on a release date yet for String Theory or if these tracks have even left the demo-stage, but at this rate we might have an album on our hands before too long and if Fauntleroy keeps offering, we’ll certainly take it. Listen to James Fauntleroy’s double-dose of left-field acoustic r&b ballads below and be sure to keep it locked for more from the compositional wunderkind.
