All signs are suggesting that London resident Leo Kalyan, who dropped the enticingly smoky Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High For This back in November, will soon be a serious contender in the growing ocean of neo-soul enthusiasts alongside artists like SOHN and How to Dress Well. Backed by personal friend and exceptionally talented vocalist/remixer MNEK, Mr. Kalyan has developed a knack for constructing woozy r’n’b landscapes packed full of sex appeal, shown most recently in his aptly titled track Temptation. This time the newcomer flexes his own vocal prominence amidst a glossy guitar backdrop, applying a series of echoing drums and sensual snaps that unfold to support the tale of late night encounters and you guessed it, lustful temptation. We soon become lost in a pseudo-Balaeric haze, where nothing is certain but everything feels right, akin to a humid night in the streets of a foreign city. Stream the track below and keep an eye on this guy, as there’s no doubt he’ll be back on the scene soon enough.
