When it comes to genre blending indie pop, Cautious Clay is one of our favorite practitioners. We’ve been following the Cleveland artist’s latest album rollout and after a grueling wait, Deadpan Love is finally available for our listening pleasure in full.
Cautious has built a reputation for introspective songwriting, tapping into his own relationships and personal identity for inspiration. This latest project sees him fine tune this process with bolstered confidence and stronger sense of self assuredness that plays out crystal clear in its melodies. Clay embraces the relational peaks and valleys equally in this new offering, celebrating the triumphs in tracks like “Artificial Irrelevance,” while also respecting the short-comings with samples like “Spinner.”
Clay’s reflective nature in songwriting and uncanny knack for musical composition never fail to give us a high quality product that’s just so pleasing to the ear. Stream Cautious Clay’s new album, Deadpan Love, below. Enjoy!
