Raj Chrome isn't so much a name as a title.
The songwriter behind it has written material you will probably be aware of - he's worked with the likes of A$AP Rocky, for one - but this solo venture has a striking direction of its own.
Dank, dark alt-R&B delivered with a veil of mystery, the maturity of the songwriting is matched to crystalline production.
New cut 'The Key' is built around that distorted vocal, a half-whispered lament that speaks openly of love, loss, and regret.
The tinkling piano notes add swathes of colour, while the ominous low-end fuels the innate paranoia of the songwriting.
Tune in now.
