Home Made Soul,
This review is from: His & Hers (Audio CD)
Brooklyn-based Denitia (Odigie) and Sene (Brian Marc) deliver a tidy
little debut with 'His & Hers'. Gentle stripped-down electronic soul
with a strong heartbeat and warm blood running through its veins.
They both sing very nicely both alone and together and these ten songs
display a firm grasp of melody and harmony. There's a home-made quality
to the production which gives their inventions a modest but likable twist.
The gentle summer-of-love cadences and crisp beats of opening track
'because we are fools.' support a delightful central tune; both
'lucy.loosie.' and the lovely 'trip.fall.' have more than a whiff of early
Sade about them and none the worse for that and the dreamy final track
'blah.blah.blah' carries us away into the distance on a warm ocean wave.
Nothing at all demanding but well-crafted and perfectly easy on the ear.
