NOTES
Moody, hip-hop, r&b with tight beats and free-floating paths of ethereal and innovative production in the likes of Drake, Frank Ocean, and Maxwell with hints of the soul essence of Marvin Gaye. Compassion feat. EFFIGY is the first single taken from the forthcoming Andre Akinyele album entitled Telegram Mews. The song title says it all, as much through atmosphere, and as it does with words. The choruses drift through conscious revelations, resulting in a smooth and precisely constructed masterpiece. With pristine vocal twists and turns, Compassion is interlaced with sleek production.
