Every once in a while I stumble upon musicians that catch my attention immediately. Mostly because they have both a distinctive and recognizable sound. Same goes for Atlanta based duo The Pheels. Now I’ve been accused of focussing on “r&b” (such a broad term though) too much, but this is just something I couldn’t resist sharing. I’ve read them making ‘stoner r&b’ and I can imagine where that comes from. It sounds ethereal, smooth and relaxed, with some spot on rap verses in between. All in good balance though. But before I sound all vague and stoner myself, do listen to their EP LikeWise! Personal favourites: ‘RnS’ and ‘French Toast’.
