There’s something about“Shivers” that gets down in the soul right away. There’s no distracting glitz of over production. The ring of the guitar feels honest, vulnerable and wonderfully evocative over the smooth groove and gentle bounce of the beat. There’s a mystery in Lewis’ atmospheric approach that keeps you excitingly uncomfortable yet with a sense of something somehow familiar. It makes you feel…right… as if you“know” something without knowing.
Cooper carries the vibe well — the slight grit in his timbre and the run of his voice like a cool river. I find myself listening to this again and again.
House music producer SG Lewis and singer JP Cooper are a smart match… ones to watch for.
