Christon Gray ft. Swoope - Vanish
This is only Christon Gray‘s first feature on our pages, but the indie-R&B buzzmaker is already thinking of packing his things, jumping in his car and Vanishing over the horizon. I’m sincerely hoping he doesn’t go through with it, since that would mean we’d be deprived of quality tunes like this cut, a standout off the Columbus, Ohio native’s recently-released debut album. Wit‘s crisp drums, reverberant keyboard chords and striking sampled accents accompany Gray as he ponders whether to cut his losses and hit the road, stay with the woman he loves, or combine the two options and run away with the girl in question. Booth newcomer Swoope, a fellow Buckeye State representative, spits about the intricacies of his own current relationship in a poetic closing 16. Interest piqued? You can hear more from Christon Gray on School of Roses, released last Tuesday via Collision Records.
