 Solange: Some Things Never Seem To Fucking Work

It Fucking works!

Solange's latest EP has been well reviewed in alternative music circles, all praising her for not simply following in her older sisters footsteps. But then I just think well why would she, Beyoncé has sold millions of records as a mainstream RnB diva what would be the point in competing with that. 

What Solange does really well is to come at it slightly left-field with an early 80s pop-RnB retro edge that sounds very fresh with today's production values. Signed to Brooklyn indie label Terrible Records, home to Grizzly Bear and Chairlift, on this EP she worked with Dev Hynes, aka Lightspeed Champion.

She sounds a bit Mariah Carey on Lovers in the Parking Lot, but its the production and underlying groove that makes this a refreshing and unique sound. Lead single Losing You is all over the radio now and is probably the most 'mainstream' pop tune on the EP, sounding like it could have come straight off Madonna's True Blue album. Solange certainly has a better voice than Madonna though. Some Things Never Seem To Fucking Work the EP's stellar moment with a sweeping drum loop and an infectious pop-hook melody. Solange doesn't go for the big chorus, each song tells a story and maintains a progressive high throughout. A clever mix that begs for continuous plays. Highly Recommended.
