Cameron Bloomfield Gives a Taste of his Pipes with Lazerus

Sourcing D’Angelo, Anderson .Paak, and Thundercat as contemporary inspirations, Cameron Bloomfield sets himself up to be weighed against heavy comparison. And yet, the London songwriter fond of a higher range, organic instrumentalism, and raw emotionality doesn’t misstep in his own take on transcendent modernism. Off-the-bat, one of his newer singles, Lazerus holds true to no delineation of the past. Instead, it’s darkly romantic and reminiscent of R&B cornerstones while at the same time playfully sensual in ways that a London-based funk renaissance is becoming known for. Electric guitar breakdowns separate what’s really a three-part composition, building in emotion and heavier musical nuances throughout. At first, it’s sensitivities appeal to a low-toned R&B ear. In the middle, it builds to something more modern and transcendent. And at the end, it explodes into a full-on funk anthem.

 

With more already out from Bloomfield – Another Man’s Woman – keep an ear out for what is starting to seem like a consistent and wide-ranging rollout of singles.
