Frank Ocean. The Weeknd. Sampha. We all know there are some powerful emotions behind those iconic voices; it’s how they manage to sneak themselves inside the very core of your emotional epicentre and shake it all up, with or without your consent. When we first caught wind of Sway Clarke, we experienced a similar effect. In his stumbly pop collaboration with Tink, which irrevocably calls to mind Frank Ocean Channel Orange vibes, and with the help of the Tycho-sampling “Tangerine,” the Berlin singer has rooted himself in our heads with his voice. Take a listen and let us know what you think.
