Jonah McGowan – Home Free (Prod. by Anleu)
British singer Jonah McGowan describes his sound as “late-night music,” and that description is certainly fitting for his dark, brooding new single “Home Free.”
McGowan, whose track “Stronger” was a hit online in 2014, has a unique, emotive voice that gives his music more feeling than your run-of-the-mill electronic R&B artist. While the genre has grown exponentially in popularity recently, McGowan remains at the forefront of the sound, this time enlisting producer Anleu for a soulfu, downtempo instrumental.
The track features some interesting flourishes, including ample use of backmasking and some creative uses of vocal samples.
As far as comparisons, Thomston and Sam Sure initially come to mind, both for their electronic influences and their powerful vocals.
Regardless, it’s exciting to hear new tracks from McGowan, who remains a powerful and engaging musician.
