AUDIO: Clayton – “Tempting Fate”
Singer and songwriter Clayton explores indecision, longing and vexation in this 4-track EP, mixed by Systematik and produced by Yogic Beats. In “Better Alone,” the vocalist expresses a burned out relationship and thinking about someone else while simultaneously wanting to be alone. The song “Wifey” changes the pace with a funky bass riff and rolling beat while Clayton harmonizes with an electronic piano. The sounds of the guitars, synths, bass and drums together are superbly mixed and Clayton lets his vocal range shine in the climax of his songs. The overall product is a warm R&B recording, and even though the lyrical themes are introspective, it doesn’t take away from the energy of the music.
