Cautious Clay – Juliet + Caesar
Cautious Clay crushed it towards the end of 2017. His released Cold War, a single that hit #1 on Hypem’s Popular Charts and landed on numerous popular Spotify playlists, including Fresh Finds, Pop Chillout, Alternative R&B, and Weekly Buzz. This gave the up-and-coming artists close to 3 million streams on the single alone.
Cautious Clay was also featured on Petit Biscuit’s Wake Up, alongside Bipolar Sunshine. Petit Biscuit is certainly an artist to watch in 2018. The French producer played major festivals last year, and is set to play at Coachella this year. According to Soundcloud, Cautious Clay is an artist to watch in 2018.
Today, the Brooklyn-based, Washington DC native released his single, Juliet & Caesar. The single is off his upcoming EP, Blood Type, set to drop in February. With celestial synths, Cautious Clay’s soulful vocals, and a dynamic arrangement, this song moves beautifully. This full-body production really showcases Josh’s care and admiration for the craft. The harmonies between the instruments and vocals create a warm ambiance perfect for relaxing, chillin, pregames, car rides, cooking, feeling, and slow-mo vids on Instagram. The single also showcased are Josh’s sax skills – he grew up playing the sax when he was younger.
Juliet & Caesar is a gospel-centric, R&B tune, giving me hints of Chance The Rapper from a melody and instrument storytelling perspective.
