East London’s SIDIQ Slows it Down with Acoustic Brand New Day
Evan Dale // Sep 13, 2019
East London Soul singer and songwriter, SIDIQ has a rangy aesthetic that finds itself most at home in the comforts of softer-toned R&B. His vocal delivery is crystalline, fluidly maneuvering between emotive highs and silky lows. And his penmanship is expressly personal, detailing tales of love and loss surely rooted in his own experiences. His newest single, Brand New Day is of a particularly acoustic aesthetic. Backed by mellow strums and late-summer vibes, it’s the kind of mellow track sure to take his audience from one searching for more classically tuned R&B deliveries towards one keen to the lighter side of R&B’s acoustic calmness.
If anything, Brand New Day is a bold testament to SIDIQ’s range and an exhibition that his vocal delivery is strong enough to stand unguarded by anything more than a simple guitar riff. And that, for any vocalist, is a difficult thing to prove.
