BOBBY NOURMAND and JESSICA ZESE, “SANTO”
Aside from one single release last year, it’s been a while since the infectious grooves of Bobby Nourmand have graced our ears. After a series of highly infectious singles in 2017-18, he’s back with a change of pace on the more progressive “SANTO”, which features new Canadian vocalist/songwriter Jessica Zese. I’m not quite sure what it’s all about, but “SANTO” is one of those slices of atmospheric electronica that takes you by the ear and leads you deep into the night. Jessica’s lovely voice is interwoven with the music and ambiance, and becomes the song’s siren of sorts. “SANTO” is out of the ordinary and designed to make you ask about it, and I’ll look forward to more of Bobby’s latest artistry as it evolves. The above version is the radio edit; “SANTO” is a 2-song single that also includes an even longer “edit” – perhaps we’ll hear the full version at some point!
