Houston's Hamond aims to lose himself in music.
Allowing his spirt to permeate through fantastical threads of R&B, his songwriting balances a need for abstraction with a thirst for perfection.
New project 'Pirate Radio' is out on June 8th, released on vital UK tastemaker imprint +Fours.
Stripped from the release, new single 'Pieces' is out now, and it illuminates his dynamic approach.
Opening with fuzzed-out guitar lines, there's an almost psychedelic framework to the song, before blossoming into something R&B focussed.
Hamond shows off his falsetto, while the production gloss takes 'Pieces' in a fresh, focussed direction.
“It's about wanting more but not getting what you want from somebody and then coming to terms with that” explains Hamond. “...and, it's about moving on!”
Tune in now.
