Albin Lee Meldau
ESNS: 2019
On Albin's debut album About You, those pipes of his connect a rich history of rhythm and blues - Al Green, Van Morrison - to contemporary innovators like James Blake, Sam Smith and Hozier. Actually the music does that too, swelling from spare guitar or piano ballads, to mashups of hip-hop beats and sweeping strings, to hands-in-the-air soul-soaked dance-pop. That's no doubt got a bit to do with Albin's collaborators: writers like Jimmy Napes (Sam Smith, Disclosure), DJ Khalil (Anderson .Paak), and Neil Ormandy (James Arthur), plus producers Bastian Langebaek (Jessie Ware, Jack Garratt) and Jamie Scott (Rag'n'Bone Man, Ed Sheeran).
