Pre-order the new AM & Shawn Lee album "Outlines" at: amsounds.bandcamp.com/album/outlines…deluxe-version
The transatlantic duo continue their journey forward via the past, digging heavily into obscure soul, sound library and soundtracks and re-imagine them through a pop lens. AM & Shawn Lee focus heavily on synthesizers this time around, but still keep the core organic with live drums and bass, placing a heavy importance on groove. Sonically "Outlines" tips it's hat to other synthesized soul productions such as The System or The Blackbyrds...minimalist, future soul re-worked for today.
The first single "Persuasion" sets up the album perfectly with a revolving, atmospheric synth pattern suddenly interrupted by a deep funk groove peppered with staccato vocal stylings.
