There is a lot of mystery surrounding Leks Rivers, a twenty year old singer/producer who creates layered R&B infused tracks. His latest offering, “Soho Knights” blends vocals that have an air of Frank Ocean with production and instrumentals reminiscent of King Krule.
A saxophone weaves its way throughout the track, giving a song that could easily seem over-produced and inaccessible a grounding in the familiar. “Soho Knights” is always giving the listener the unexpected, with the last minute featuring a breakdown into a sort of psychedelic instrumental, tying in an underlying theme that had been running throughout the whole song.
While Leks Rivers is currently unsigned I doubt it will stay that way for long. Keep an eye on his Soundcloud for new releases!
