Tay Devenny’s Shrine is finally here and free to stream and download on Bandcamp.
We’ve heard plenty of atmospheric “PBR&B” from the US over the past few years, with the likes of The Weeknd, Frank Ocean and Jhené Aiko making names for themselves with the style. But mixing that vibe with fantastic wordplay and hip hop sensibilities in the UK isn’t a familiar concept. That’s where Tay Devenny comes in and his debut solo album “shrine” is now available for free download on Bandcamp. Credit for the atmosphere on shrine is thanks to producer cosmic as the euphoria bleeds through from each and every track and Tay’s almost tantric rhymes accentuate the music that rolls behind them. In all fairness, this album is beyond any conceivable genre as it serves to be a unique form of its own. Sure, there are sketches of hip hop, spoken word, R&B, ambient and even shoegaze but they remain faint outlines of a bigger musical picture.
