OKP Premiere: SassyBlack Invites You Into Her 'Personal Sunlight' w/ A Heavy Dose Of Cerebral R&B
As one half of THEESatisfaction, SassyBlack has solidified herself as one of the most distinctive voices in this very funky and very cerebral corner of the left-field. And while the duo has been blazing trails both terrestrially and cosmically for some time now, Black’s got plenty more to offer all of you soul music futurists out there. Today she’s relinquished a full-bloom EP by the name of Personal Sunlight, headed by the glitchy electric groove of its title track, but that’s only the very tip of this icy musical mountain. The EP seamlessly transitions from spooky r&b-ism to more organic offerings without every losing a step, fluid and disjointed all at once. And while the EP stands at a slim 19-minutes and some change, it’s chock-full of reverie-inducing melodics and even shades a bit of a dystopian feel. Catch the transmission from SassyBlack’s Personal Sunlight EP below and peep one of her forthcoming tour dates to get all of the sonic goodies live and direct.
