Royce Wood Junior is a flame burning brightly.
As Clash put it earlier this year: "With working relationships established with people like Jamie Woon and Kwabs, Royce is likely to be going places."
And 'places' is exactly where he is 'going'. Big places. Critically acclaimed places. Studio shaped places where he can work with Rosie Lowe, who drops past on 'Hardly'.
Stripped from his new EP, 'Hardly' is both beautiful and extremely intense. Swamped in R&B textures, there's a melancholy, a sense of loss to the music.
The visuals seem to be drawn from old talk shows, featuring moments of sobbing hysteria juxtaposed with Royce Wood Junior's music.
Watch it now.
