Snoh Aalegra Explores the Trouble of Summer Crushes with Situationship
Evan Dale // Aug 4, 2019
Snoh Aalegra’s 2019 road towards her upcoming album has been the smoothest and silkiest sonic journey of the year. Redefining R&B and Neo-Soul’s coalescence with each step, her singles have brought with them nothing if not vibrant range and raw emotion. Where I Want You Around and You bubbled over with downtempo explorations on undeniable love and the timelessness of analogue instrumentation, and where Find Someone Like You erred on the side of jovial choir explosiveness, Situationship is a different stroke altogether without faltering in anyway.
Built upon the foundation of low-key yet expectedly emotional electronic key strokes and modernist production, Snoh Aalegra embarks down a path of light-hearted humor and poppy choral play, inviting a wider audience into her midst and allowing her to explore something a little more personally experimental. The outcome is painfully relatable to anyone with a downward spiral of a summer crush, and a warm, up-tempo take from an artist who has at least lately been focused on a different direction.
