Cautious Clay – Blood Type (EP)
Cautious Clay just released his Blood Type EP. The songwriting on this is beautiful, giving me arrangements reminiscent of Chance and Kid Cudi. There’s an essence of soul, jazz, and gospel that combine with R&B in a modern way. Three songs off the EP have already been released. Those single are Cold War, Joshua Tree, and Juliet & Cesear.
The EP is an amalgamation of indie and hip-hop that bend modern taste towards the future. Cautious’ falsettos and chilled out raps create special place for storytellers in music. This is a poetic way of saying I love the way he arranges his music. Each transition is a different emotion clearly described by the instrumentation and vocals.
Blood Type, the self-named EP single, contains elements of hip-hop, R&B, indie rock, psychedelic rock, and gospel that rise beautifully in energy. The chorus reminds me of something Chance would do. Throughout the track and most of the tracks, Cautious Clay’s vocals are highlighted. These jazz arrangements with Cautious’ vocals out in front are an ode to his control of the narrative and song witting.
Cautious Clay is a artist originally from Washington DC and currently living in Brooklyn, New York.
The EP is perfect for crying, feeling good, crying while feeling good, pregames, contemplating life, chillin with friends, coolin with fools, singing in the shower, painting while drinking, drinking while painting, comprehensive listening, sunsets, centering yourself, guiding your daily narration, or a slow motion video on Instagram of anything worth celebration.
