Vocals form every hook in new experimental RnB track.
If you haven’t heard of Res before, stop reading this sentence and just hit play on the track below. Hollow is a new killer track from Res, arguably the best possible introduction to the artist you could ask for.
Bass-intensive and hook heavy, Hollow strikes with a storm of angsty moodiness entangled in beautiful melodies. Res’ vocals, while sometimes a bit swamped in the mix, are perfect, reaching a midpoint between the low bass notes and the voice samples that jump between low- and high-pitched. While this may originally strike as a track that draws its appeal from the dark ambience of the instrumentation, it’s the voice that makes this song. It’s a rare example of a song which utilises the vocal in a variety of different ways, with every single hook in the song being derived from some version of Res’ voice.
It’s a little bit unusual but entirely enjoyable, shining bright beams of pop and RnB through the experimental haze. If you only listen to one Res track, make it this one – before long you’ll find yourself hook and listening to her upcoming album Reset too.
