An exciting rising artist we’ve been impressed by lately is the newcomer Cautious Clay who has a hypnotizing, unique sound putting a indie spin on hip-hop, and we can’t get enough of it. Today we’re pleased to be premiering the acoustic version of his hit track “Cold War” along with its live video.
Cautious Clay’s vocals have a calming quality about them that always seem to hit just right. He has a way of using these soulful vocals with his infectious songwriting that has his songs stuck in our head for days at a time. His relaxed and incredibly soothing singing voice is just as impressive as the other side of his range as he effortlessly hits falsetto notes showing off his vocal diversity. The original track has a minimalist instrumental placing focus on his vocals, and here he shines atop the backdrop consisting of guitar and percussion until he picks up a saxophone to bring even more soul making for an amazing take on his already great song. Don’t sleep on Cautious Clay… keep an eye out for his upcoming EP and enjoy!
