Raised on a a steady diet of R&B, hip-hop, rock, blues, and soul music, it is hardly a great surprise that Philadelphia’s Devon Gilfillian own sound gravitates to one that ignited the mind while making the body move.
Gilfillian already has a number of releases to his name but with a forthcoming debut album on the horizon, he has shared new single ‘Get Out And Get It’ – an exuberant blend of neo-soul, psych, funk and Afrobeat. ‘Get Out And Get It’ is a radiant, jaunty and joyously infectious cut, with some soulful psych-pop leanings. It is bursting at the seams with colour and vitality as it shifts along a fabulous funky strut, that swaggers and sways amid the warm groove, bubbling basslines and is given an added level of supreme coolness by the utterly smooth, soulful vocals from Gilfillian. A soulful funky groover, this is utterly irresistible and compelling listening – this is powerful stuff.
Listen to ‘Get Out And Get It’ below – hopefully we’ve more detailed news on the album soon.
