Bringing professional visuals to the stage, of a retro set-up and contemporary dance-fusion performance, producer Dobie and singer Xavier Clayton join forces once more – presenting the soulful classic that is Again.
Featuring the simplicity of a euphoric nineties-style synth riff, alongside softly expressive vocals and an energising rhythm, Again unites emotive songwriting with the natural embrace of Dobie’s skilful sound-design.
The arrangement hits with nostalgia, familiarity, yet Xavier’s ever-unusual leading voice injects a clear degree of identity that elevates things to more creative realms. In turn, the production meanders and evolves throughout various new melodic peaks that prove hypnotic and memorable.
Feeling like a soul-pop remix from a simpler time, Again captivates and connects throughout. An increasingly likeable, thoughtful hit of escapism, with just enough personality to transcend the walls of genre and reach out in a genuinely moving way.
