Vocalist Zak Abel, better known for lending his voice to Gorgon City’s hit Unmissable, has released a fresh new track titled Say Sumthin, and enlisted Kaytranada (pictured) for production duty.
A swelling bassline and crisp drum riffs offset Abel’s passionate croon for a final product that stays focused on the lyrics while Kaytranada’s iconic retro style keeps everything funky. A softer female vocal floats effortlessly in the background to echo Abel’s chorus and reinforce images of the lyrics’ heartbreaking meaning.
Say Sumthin will be a part of Zak Abel’s forthcoming EP, which, in addition to Kaytranada, comes with star collaborations from Tom Misch and Karma Kid. There is no official release date, or name, set for the new EP but you can hear more jazzy-pop infusions from Abel at his website here.
