After a series of powerful singles, singer-songwriter Joël Lobban further demonstrates his vocal prowess with his new release, “Note 2 Self”. A departure from his more upbeat tracks, the Toronto-based artist channels his city’s trademark sounds for his new drop; dark, brooding, and contemplative. Arriving in tandem with the changes in Toronto’s weather, the icy nature of Note 2 Self is indicative of both Lobban and producer, Alo’s flexibility as artists. Their past collaborations have been far from monotonous, leaving their next steps something of a mystery. With a history of interpolating Soul, Electronic, and Grunge influences, we can’t wait to hear what they come up with next.
