Skateboard P has been making his rounds this year. And with the steam built behind Aloe Blacc’s new EP, Wake Me Up, you can expect nothing but heat from this pairing. So it’s not a shocker that the first track we hear, “Love Is The Answer,” is pure fire.
The delightful record sounds like a spring time, feel-good tune. Aloe provides his smooth alto and soulful bravado. His vocals blend well with Pharrell’s falsetto and his funky, horn-filled production we’re starting to hear a lot of this year. This song and the Wake Me Up EP – available on iTunes – are a sign of continued goodness coming from Aloe.
