Labeling themselves as a “genre-confused band from New Jersey,” Simple Man showcase an eclectic sound on their latest EP, touching on rock, jazz, hip-hop, and soul in their collection of stylistic endeavors. Rather than sounding perplexed, the act manages excellent cohesion despite the various touching stones. Point in case on “Just In Case”, the third single off their forthcoming Soul Sigh EP. A quaint guitar and vocal pairing comprises the initial minute, reaching a dramatic shift as the one-minute mark. “Puzzle pieces all in place,” is a hook that resonates with success, especially as lush acoustics and strings enter the fold around 01:20. Seamlessly blending symphonic elements with pop and a hint of hip-hop int he vocals, “Just In Case” is a flourishing success from a very promising EP. The final minute conclusion is particularly sweeping.
“Just In Case” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2018’ Spotify playlist.
