One of my favorite dark R&B arts practitioners, o F F Love, recently dropped a new single from his upcoming record Probably Love. Sparse piano wraps around screams that sound lost in the night, while a thudding kick guides liquid vocals. o F F has become a master of using minimal aesthetics that clearly put across his feelings, almost as if he's wearing them on his musical sleeves. One of his favorite artists, Sail A Whale, also put their touch on an equally killer remix to the track. While still pretty minimal, a shimmering synth fills the background of the song, leaving no moment silent and seemingly instilling hope into o F F's want to "be around u."
