In today’s age, technology has flooded our lives with content. Caught in the mire are today’s musicians who champion an artform that’s more widely distributed than any other throughout human history. And we, more often than not, overlook the music created by unfamiliar faces because it’s challenging. We’d rather have an easy listen, a known quantity to skim through while we think about something else.
Hearing is easy, but listening is difficult. Welcome to “Why We Like It”, where we rebuke the trends in favor of thoughtful analysis and underknown sounds.
SEB – “I’m All Your’s”
How We Found It
I first came across “I’m All Yours” when SEB submitted the song to us through our portal at SubmitHub. Although we weren’t previously familiar with SEB, we were hooked within the first 20 seconds. The track is dubbed as “Contemporary R&B” and cites Toro y Moi, Frank Ocean, and Anderson .Paak as influences.\
What We Like
“I’m All Your’s” is a dynamic track that hides its real beauty in the details. SEB’s vocals are smooth and simple, peaking with a balanced and catchy hook that does precisely what’s needed: no more and no less. We love the fact that SEB produces all his own music because it allows him to incorporate a lot of musicality into the song to keep it fresh throughout. From subtle changes to the musical key within the beat to experimenting with rhythm and time signature in the bridge, SEB gives this track the subtle musical details that keep you coming back – even if it’s his voice that brings you to the table in the first place.
From the Artist
The part of “I’m All Your’s” that I’m most proud of is my vocal performance. This was the first time I felt like I was able to finally get the exact right inflections that I wanted. This song alone has helped me out so much with the rest of my music.” – SEB
