London musician Sid Batham crafts a mix of glitchy soul and lush electronica on debut album Good Love, carried by funk-fuelled rhythms, shimmering synths and soaring vocals. A nine-track production brimming with energetic soundscapes that come to life with a modern yet timeless vibe.
Starting off with the crisp beats and soft vocals of “Like Gold,” the album is consistently groovy whether on “Above Water,” or “Anytime,” showcasing a suave delivery bolstered by sultry infusions like on stand-out “Don’t Wanna Say,” and bass-tinged “Do You Remember?.”
The anthemic quality is offset by passionate offering like focus track and closer “When I Get Home,” an uber slow-build number led by layers of guitars and gentle beats. Hinged on the experimentation that he constantly attempts on each of his new releases, the album is a raw and expansive production that sees him realise his full potential after the release of his 2019 EP The Demo Tapes.
Departing from the upbeat tones he has offered up so far, the stylish, genre-bending body of work sees Sid Batham ascend into new levels of musical stardom.
