For the past few months, we haven't been able to get enough of the sultry, dancey R&B of Swedish multi-instrumentalist and singer, Lucas Nord. Today he's streaming his newest record Company. It's a seven-song romp that combines a real sense of emotion in both vocal delivery and lyricism, while also bringing huge and fun production. The record opens with the uplifting choral section of "Faking," layered over a thick beat which morphs into a beauty of a track. Elsewhere on the record are cuts like the title track "Company," slowing down the pace and letting the track get cool and sultry. It leads to "Do About It," a high-energy, get-your-ass-on-the-dance-floor beat coupled with perfectly expressively vocals. It's a record that indulges in style and precision, a mission to not let anybody around stand still, not feeling that energy.
