The amount of 1980s/1990s funk finesse that is dripping off of the new Benjamin Race single Memories is intense. The vocals (laid down here by Donna Odain) are rich and warm, the perfect counterpoint for the synths and perfectly-placed percussion acting as the song’s instrumental back drop. Everything feels period-accurate while possessing an immediacy tthat will keep listener interest in the single high. We love every new element we’re exposed to on Memories, whether it be the sizzling horns, the thick and ropy bass lines, or the bit of guitar that stitches the track tautly together. Memories has our strongest recommendations; check it out today.
