sho – “Take My Hand”


The soulful “Take My Hand” is an accomplished track from Brooklyn-based singer/producer Sho. Taking an inspiration from artists like Prince and Blood Orange, Sho’s vein of R&B is melodic and nostalgic — also reminding fondly of The Style Council. Constant throughout is a sensual bass line and entrancing vocal presence, touting multiple layers, particularly during the fully successful “take my hand,” chorus. In the final minute, a bouncy ’80s synth touch adds nicely to the intermingling vocal croons and thick bass line. Look for Sho to make waves, as “Take My Hand” is very impressive.

“Take My Hand” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2019’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Indie Funk, Soul, and R&B.
