The cryptic world of Allan Rayman seems to reflect our own, but it's somewhat more inviting.
Those potent early releases have racked up more than 100 million streams, a dank, twilight take on R&B given a highly personal twist.
Now based in Toronto, Allan Rayman's intriguingly titled new album 'Harry Hard-On' arrives next month, a further step forward from the songwriter.
Out on November 16th, production comes from Andrew Dawson, a key figure in the creation of Kanye West's 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'.
Set to headline London's Scala on December 14th, the album is led by potent new single 'Rose' - and Clash has first play.
Bewitching, at times paranoid, at others beautiful, it's impossible to ignore, matching dirty rock influences to his potent R&B leaning sound.
We're able to share the full video before anyone else - tune in below.
