After two and a half years of work, Minneapolis native Afrodile Trane is back with a new single. “In A Sentimental Groove” is an artistic rebirth for the artist and a beautiful fusion of soul, jazz, R&B and hip-hop.
Afrodile Trane is a 21-year-old singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. She studied songwriting at Berklee College of Music in Boston and she discovered D’Angelo there. Inspired by John Coltrane, that she considers as “the best singer that has ever lived”, Afrodile‘s new sound will remind you of Solange, Erykah Badu and Amy Winehouse.
“In A Sentimental Groove” is far from most of the contemporary R&B and soul tracks one can hear at the moment. The beautiful guitar-driven ballad sounds authentic and is not over-loaded with faking effects. The song is the result of her collaboration with producers Chris Plante and Daniel Alvarez de Toledo.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/312867297″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
