ZEROBADDAYS and VICTOR PERRY, “Eve”
For the last few years you’ve read fairly frequently in these blog pages about NYC-based, Georgia-bred singer/songwriter Victor Perry. Victor has one of the most distinct, consistent, engaging (and unsigned!) male voices around – and other than when producers choose to mess with it a bit, it doesn’t hurt that his voice is almost perfectly on key every time 🙂 Victor has two recent releases, a second partnership with Germany’s ZEROBADDAYS (aka Mr. Stan Sax of Saxity) and a new one from his side project with British producer Ficci called Labrose. “Eve” is lyrical retrotastic Michael Jackson-inspired alt.soul – it reminds me of those fine deeper songs you’d often find on a late 70’s Jacksons album that still resonate today. It’s quite a different record from the first ZEROBADDAYS collaboration, the gentle “We’ll Be Okay”. “Eve” is lovely and a real grower. “Boomerang” is more pop flavoured and follows up last year’s catchy “Gravity”. It’s more of a late night “quiet storm” track with Victor’s voice gliding over the lilting electronic backdrop. Add “Eve” and “Boomerang” to your favourite playlists where pop and R&B converge ASAP!
