LA riser CARTER is rapidly coming to grips with his own potential.
His storming, breakout EP 'Of(f) Course' made waves, with the songwriter fusing cutting edge R&B with caramel soft soul, hip-hop and trap, all while offering a personal journey.
Taking a step forwards, the 19 year old polymath is ready to unleash his new single.
Out in a matter of hours, 'Trust In Issues' airs first on Clash, and it's a buoyant, snappy piece of R&B songwriting.
There are elements of Frank Ocean at his direct or even someone more commercial like Usher, but this is fragmented through CARTER's own lens.
Highly personal but eager to look ever-outwards, 'Trust In Issues' is a bold return, the sound of an artist working without inhibitions.
From the soulful vocal to the digi-leaning production, it's an emphatic statement from a songwriter still not out of his teens.
