First Listen: SoulTrackers, meet Vague Detail

(May 15, 2021) In an image-conscious, social media-driven world, one that seemingly fuels careers and industries with "shares" and "likes," imagine performers more concerned with their sound rather than their style. It's likely no coincidence that such a collective would remain under the radar and call themselves---wait for it---Vague Detail. Their name may become a misnomer soon enough, ironically, based on the slick yet soulful music that they've created together as Kaleem Taylor (vocalist) and The Code (producer), such as the new "How Does It Feel."

Established in the UK, Vague Detail's first single from their upcoming EP is as much a vibe as it is a groove: meticulously rendered, the vocals will recall 112's Slim, but a different temperature and depth. The lyrics are open-ended enough to allow the imagination to conjure a unique interpretation of what "It" means, but the feeling behind the lyrics is as unavoidable as the slithery jam: "People think that I don't have the strength to get away from you," Taylor intones, before describing the weight and gravity of an all-consuming love...or obsession? Only the listener's mood (or present relationship status) can determine which. 

Bottom-heavy, yet sleek; cryptic, yet appealingly cool, "How Does It Feel" is a vibe that whets the appetite for more and gives a hint of what Vague Detail can bring to the forefront when skills are more emphasized than slick filters or simple gimmicks. If this cut is just a taste of what they're serving, their entire menu will be in higher demand stateside soon enough.
