Track of the Day: Spencer. “Automatic” (2019)

To celebrate his recent signing to 4AD / Remote Control Records, US artist Spencer. has dropped new single, “Automatic”. With its retro groove and mesmerising bass line, the single is oozing both cool charm and confident swagger. 

There’s plenty to be confident about too, with the twenty year old garnering some serious buzz in his native United States and in the UK. His debut single, “Want U Back”, released in August 2018 after he’d dropped out of college, has amassed over one million plays on Spotify and was picked up for radio play. 

“Automatic” certainly seems to justify all that early buzz. Whilst it might not perhaps be the flashiest live of RnB out there, there is no denying its charm and style. Spencer. deploys his velvety vocals with an almost laissez-faire attitude, making it seem all so effortless. It’s also such an ear worm too and rewards repeat listens. The song, which will feature on a forthcoming 2020 project, is accompanied by a Danica Arias Kleinknecht directed video depicting a young love from beginning to end.

“Automatic” is available now. Keep up to date with Spencer. via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
