Azekel – “No Ordinary Love”

artworks 000046302226 q2gh9t t500x500 Azekel   No Ordinary Love

When last we heard British singer Azekel, he was doing a pretty good job of stealing our hearts and providing the perfect music to set the mood with simple, soulful “That Feeling.”

On follow up “No Ordinary Love,” Azekel takes a less arresting approach, trading the arresting sparseness of “That Feeling” for of-the-moment sultry production that emphasizes bass and recalls the R&B (and even a bit of the trip-hop vibe) that have influenced the current crop of indie soul crooners.

While a solid second act and display of Azekel’s evocative vocals, “No Ordinary Love” doesn’t quite hit the same high water mark as “That Feeling,” the latter the sort of song that becomes an early calling card. It’s exciting to see an artist develop with each song and Azekel’s exploration of the difficulties of love between a father and son is certainly heartfelt, but those expecting a similar experience to their first brush with the young singer may find “No Ordinary Love” lacking.
