Tom Aspaul ft. FTSE – “Pioneer”

Delicate-voiced London singer Tom Aspaul’s new single “Pioneer” is classified as R&B on Soundcloud, but that feels like a limiting header for the grooving new track. Riding another excellent beat from fast-rising London producer FTSE, Aspaul feels nicely tailored to a pop landscape borrowing increasing influence from the realm of modern R&B, not quite dipping into its more atmospheric leanings, but pulling from its rhythms and melodic-leanings. It’s a solid second step in Aspaul’s catalog, an enjoyable pairing of two rising talents and hopefully one of many more collaborations to come between the British talents.
