Jarell Perry is releasing the White EP in December. He describes it as personifying “a white space emotionally and artistically. A blank page. Wide. Open. Spaces.”
There’s been a track or three that dropped already, but “Braindead” and “Don’t Run From Me (feat. Locksmith)” have me particularly excited. This expansive, chilled out R&B style came into mass consciousness with The Weeknd and the like and this year has witnessed at least a handful of amazing R&B artists. I’m quite sure we can add Jarell Perry to that list.
“Braindead” and its romantic despair over the mind holding back the heart is passionate in its delivery, affecting you in the way intended because we’ve all been at this point, in some form or another. Its also one of my favorites this month.
