While radio R&B has yet to free itself of the clutches of Euro-pop maximalism, bubbling Toronto songbird Rochelle Jordan and her go-to producer KLSH continue to carve out a brand of restrained minimalism that harkens back to the mid-90s. “Too Long,” the second single from RoJo’s upcoming project P R E S S U R E, keeps up that vibe, with Jordan’s breathy vocals floating over a hazy backdrop and muted drum clicks from KLSH. With compelling melodies and a sense of subtlety that is sometimes missing in contemporary R&B, Rochelle Jordan continues to be one to watch out for.
