Col3trane is an emerging 18-year old London-based artist, of Egyptian-American heritage, combining RnB and soul in a stunning new style. Releasing his debut single ‘New Chain’ on May 19th, the sentiments he’s packing are relatable and raw, yet there’s no hint of the formulaic emotional response in his songwriting: this is off-the-leash urbane sentimentality and it’s coming for you.
The lineage of Cole’s music was born of Soundcloud’s maternity ward, where Cole met a new musical family in Birmingham with whom to swap beats, share cyphers and talk of blisteringly smart Pharaoh esotericisms. These treasures found new form with the help of producer Lauren Ralph, part of his new BRM musical family and producer of the debut single ‘New Chain.’ Joining the dots from the loose RnB of Tom Misch and Jordan Rakei, to the downtempo soul of Miguel, the track marks the first fruits of over a year of writing and production that has seen him work alongside the high-profile likes of Koz (Kendrick Lamar, Dua Lipa), Z Dot (Stormzy) and Alunageorge’s George Reid.
‘New Chain’ showcases an incredibly exciting new talent who, following intense work behind the scenes, is finally ready to step out from the shadows and make a statement.
