The Purpose by James Vickery echoes 90s Soul/R&B music capturing components of soul, funk, and blues. It’s evocative with hazy vocal textures that float over a lush backdrop of hauntingly soulful sounds to kind a dreamyandheartfeltsoundscape. His lyrics on the verses are emotional and slow-burning as they steadily unpack pulsating intimacy. The refrain is extra up-tempo and catchier with a tinge of euphoria. Once you consider fashionable songs that may turn into basic, The Purpose ought to be in your checklist.
“After my album, I used to be attempting desperately to search out one thing that made me really feel one thing the best way a number of these songs did. I had an concept to recreate a few of the most (for my part) romantic songs of all time. I can’t lie, ‘Great Tonight’ by Eric Clapton and ‘Film’ by Tom Misch had been large inspirations for me. And with this Bed room Soul/R&B sound, I had to attract inspiration from the best to have performed it, D’Angelo. ‘The Purpose’ is about that stage with somebody the place it’s now turn into greater than love, that nothing else issues anymore.” – James Vickery
