Introducing ‘Water’, the new funk-laced track from soulful singer-songwriter Fulton Lee.
‘Water’ is the lead track of Fulton Lee’s upcoming debut E.P. ‘Baby Blue’, set to drop sometime in March, and if this is anything to go by, it should be the perfect way to shake off those winter blues and gear up for the summer, one slow foot-tap at a time. With its minimalist approach and laid-back, retro bassline, this is a track made for those sleepy sunny days where everything in life seems to take a step back and slow down.
It’s a delightfully constructed call-back to the classic blue-eyed soul of the 60s and 70s, with Lee’s charming, wispy vocals complimented by the beautifully harmonious and soulful ‘ohhs’ and ‘ahhs’ of the backing vocals. It’s a slow, stripped backed affair, allowing the swaggering vocals to take centre stage while the tight rhythm section keeps things nicely ticking over, overlaid with some nice bluesy guitar work. By the time the track fades, you’ll feel like you’ve been steadily lulled to sleep.
For a debut track, on ‘Water’ Lee sounds astonishingly self-assured, and this only becomes more impressive when you consider that he’s only 20 years old. If this is a sign if things to come, then there’ll certainly be some exciting times ahead. With ‘Water’, Lee has certainly whet our appetites.
