“Dance With Me” is a catchy, moody slice of soul from SONI, who impressed with the track “Happy to Serve” in June. “Dance With Me” shows even more soulful infection. The “found my heart,” hook shines, with a brisker vocal presence and brassy blares that consume. The suave verses re-emerge seamlessly, evoking a ’70s funk-pop charm with some disco. SONI has shown through these two tracks a firm grasp of funk/disco components and aesthetic confidence, while precisely balancing freshness and nostalgia.
“Dance With Me” and other memorable tracks from June can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2020’ Spotify playlist.
